Some install scripts HAVE TO ask questions. Several schemas have been proposed
(reading replies from a file if no tty, create a library of query functions
which will detect if there is a tty and react accordingly, etc). AFAIK, not

The idea seems right but the solution is not: WebMin is horribly non-free, so there is no chance Debian will adopt it. If someone could write a similar free program, I'll pay him/her a beer when he will visit Paris (actually, several beers, if the program works).
