Well I'm not so expert in the Debian installation system to say that.
But my idea, when i subcribed, was to have a BSD kernel and all the BSD

But what I can suggest if someone will start to work on this project
is to immediatly start to produce HOWTO-START for beginners in order
to involve more people as fast as possible.
