mkkickstart doesn't write --enablemd5 in config file

Description of problem:
mkkickstart doesn't write --enablemd5 in config file. Although bugreport 18235 says this is solved for RedHat 7.0 in rawhide, mkkickstart from
RH 7.1 does *not* write --enablemd5 on a system with md5 encrypted passwords. Strange.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. mkkickstart > /etc/ks.cfg on a md5 passwords enabled system
Actual Results: --enablemd5 flag is not written in the kickstart config file
Expected Results: --enablemd5 flag written in the kickstart config file on systems with md5 encrypted passwords.

So the use of mkkickstart is discouraged. But ksconfig only works under X. Is
there a command line tool to create ks.cfg files?
the next version of red hat linux will create a kickstart config file after
every install. Use that as the framework with a text editor to customize
