Default network step always skipped in kickstart.py

I've built a rudimentary patch
that works around the problem for my purposes, see below, but while
that works with expected behaviour (leave out the network line, it
should ask you to configure a network interface) that seems a little
hacky, as it breaks down as soon as you have more than one interface...

The anaconda docs on the fedora wiki say "--bootproto=query" is the way
to get kickstart to pop up the network configuration dialog.* (this
does not work)

anaconda.spec mentions --bootproto=ask in anaconda 11.4, but it was
pulled out shortly after, and obviously doesn't work.

Is this design intent, or something over-looked, or...
