autoyast and ask

Hey all, Tried searching all over, found some documents, but never anything close to what I’m looking for.

Have many SLES11 servers to be built. All will be built the same (same geometry, patterns, etc) and the current autoyast script works great. There’s only 1 outstanding issue I haven’t resolved yet; The the odd server needs to have an additional software pattern or 2 installed. I know I could create a second xml file to include these components, but I was hoping to keep a single xml file.

Is it possible (and if so, can samples be posted?) where you can set up an ask section in the xml file to enable / disable these two extra packages in the <software> section? Or would I have to do this via post-install scripts and running zypper?
