The whole thing is clearly a mess that needs some high level

While I certainly wouldn't disagree with this statement, let's not let
perfect get in the way of better here.
What can we do in the *near* term to make it easier for people to find
the "Install to Hard Drive" option from the LiveCD? I understand that
there are technical reasons why the extension is frowned upon -- but
that shouldn't mean that we do nothing to try to improve the
situation. I tried not to complain too loudly while I was the FPL,
especially because GNOME Shell was new and had plenty of other things
to focus on. Now that it's a bit more mature, I'd really like to come
up with a better solution here.
