[arch-general] Iinstallation program

One thing I like about the current arch install methodology is that it's 
incremental.  If you don't have time to finish the install in one sitting 
all you need do is remember which step last completed then start up the 
computer and carry on from there at some later time.  Since alternatives 
exist for boot loaders if one doesn't work you can go and try another and 
when that works and everything else has worked before that in the install 
process you're good to go.  A single install program might get the 
intelligence to try to install multiple boot loaders to find out which 
ones will work and which won't, but I've never encountered any single 
install program that did that as a routine matter yet.
