I'm not working specifically for that, but one thing that I have done is pull 
the remote access code /out/ of the remote installer into a "fetcher" object 
(primarily to make improvements to fetching easier).  This may make the 
remote installer much closer to the local installer.  Perhaps close enough so 
that they may be merged.
