GTK applications like gedit, gimp, ... mirror the UI when
running in a locale of a language using a right-to-left script.
Anaconda does not. It should.
(Tested with Fedora-20-Alpha-x86_64-netinst.iso).

Another screenshot when typing the root password in
an Arabic installation in anaconda.
One can see the the labels for the password entry fields
have colons (:) on the left side, which looks completely
wrong when the entry fields are to the right of these labels.
This would also be fixed by mirroring the UI, then the entry
fields would be correctly to the left of the labels.
