I guess the following might work:

to disable before installation:
(this would have to go in every package unfortunately)
<install cmd='disable FBWF'>
                <check if FBWF is on/>
        <exit code='successfully disable code' reboot='true'/>

this will disable FBWF only if not already disabled and force an immediate 
reboot without marking the package as installed - on the next boot would 
skip this part and go on installing the package

to enable after installation:

have a package with priority 0 (so it installs last) and execute="changed" 
attributes. This means this package will only install if some other 
package hat a state change (install/upgrade/remove). Enable FBWF there.
