Does it?

First Boot:
the <condition> says FBWF is on, so FBWF gets disabled and an the system 
boots immediately (<exit code='bla' reboot='true/>)

Second Boot:
the <condition> for the disable command checks if it is already disabled. 
If it is disabled - no reboot -> packages get installed.
Then the Prio-0 Package installs last, enables FBWF, reboots.

Third boot:
No packages scheduled for install - so FBWF won't be disabled and 
prio0-package won't get installed (because it is execute=change). System 
boots normal.

Of course getting this bug-free is a challenge (one bad package def will 
cause a reboot loop) - but i think it's possible.
