Description of problem:

from http://post-office.corp.redhat.com/archives/beaker-user-list/2012-June/msg00031.html

I think it would be a useful feature to be able to supply your own 
Anaconda part commands in the job. As plain text, not XML. (It's been 
discussed on this list before, I think...)

Maybe we could add an attribute raw="True" meaning you want to pass the 
Anaconda commands directly instead of XML, and another attribute 
suppress_defaults="True" meaning you don't want the default root, boot, 
and swap. Then you could have:

    <partitions raw="True" suppress_defaults="True">
        part / --fstype ext4 --size=100 --grow

with whatever crazy part commands you want. Then it would be up to you 
to make sure they are valid and installable

I agree with this bz 100%  Although I'm not sure we need the raw="True", I don't think it makes sense to store this in xml when we should just use kickstart language.  Basically it would always be raw, but the suppress defaults makes sense.

Bulk reassignment of issues as Bill has moved to another team.

This is a dupe of bug 1198881. The solution we settled on there was ks_meta="no_autopart" to suppress the Beaker-supplied autopart command, then any desired partitioning commands can be placed in a <ks_append/>.
