Then probably we should move wvdial to core just like ie. pppoe stuff is
in core, no need for a special exceptions. And then we'd include it in
the package list for archiso. Having it in /src/core/pkg on the iso
will be a good sideeffect, not a primary goal.
I suggest someone who is into this stuff takes over, because I don't
really know what i'm talking about.
