No, the only reason I mentioned that is that that's the only way that
the installer could really become involved. I think the installed
system, probably chiefly the desktop environment given how things like
this are done these days, should get removable media right regardless of
what's plugged in at installation time. By and large it already does, so
I'm hoping that this is a small tweak.
