Good news!.

My point is simple: I install the base config. I'm in text mode. I
need networking to work to install extra packages and begin setting up
my system, users, permissions, packages, etc. I have no problem doing
that manually AFTER I get the system up and running (and by "running"
I mean 'having network connectivity'). Having me edit config files
manually is an *annoyance*.

ONCE I get networking up and running. I have no problem editing config
files, because by then, with networking enabled, I'd have installed my
favorite tools (joe editor etc).

My point being that if the networking stack is part of the base OS
install, so should be system-config-network-tui
