Subject: Network setup twice during void installation?

Running void-installer, one of the early items is 'Network'. I dutifully 
set up the network (in the install I just did, I set up the ethernet 
interface with a static IP address). The next step in the install relates 
to where the installation files are coming from (I've forgotten the exact 
wording in the menu). When you select that, you have two options: local and 
network. If you select 'network' it asks you to set up the network again. 
As an experiment, as this point I set it up to use dhcp, to see if the 
second setup over-rode the first. It does, as evidenced by the system 
coming up post-install with an assigned IP address, rather than the static 
address I'd previously specified. What is going on here? On the face of it, 
asking twice for the network setup makes no sense and I have not yet found 
any documentation explaining what the installer thinks it's doing. Is there 
a sensible rationale for this or is it a bug?
