I have just uploaded a new version that will look at the LANG envvar first
if /etc/default/locale is present. I have focused my testings in making sure
the logic works, but did not check the actual d-i code, although I suppose
LANG is set to the desired value as well as written to
(/target)/etc/default/locale. No alias substitution is attempted.

I do not think this is applicable to current d-i, but when testing upgrades
from woody, I once installed the new dict-common compliant packages in a
chroot with a bootstrapped woody system with no previous ispell/wordlist
stuff there, and I was prompted for each new installed dict/wordlist. But
for this bootstrapped woody system the reason was that apt-utils was not
included in the initial stuff, so preconfiguration was not possible.
However, when I tried a d-i installation, things worked for me, so I do not
expect that to be the reason.
