sure, will happen as soon as it gets hinted in.

Bah, that was not the only thing broken back then. Also, i asked you about the
ability to detect if we are installing sarge or etch/sid.
The good news is that now that the kernel is unified, and we can create a
single logic file for all architectures in kernel-installer, and it would be
nice if we were able to use the old code to install sarge, and a new unified
code for the etch/sid kernels.
