In addition, it should be fairly easy to add firmware D-I images;
hd-media: mount & cp
ISOs: xorriso (command-line) or isomaster (GUI), or just mount and genisoimage.
win32-loader: cp & notepad
So perhaps some extra info about remastering installation media in the
d-i manual would be good for those like DSA who cannot just add the
non-free firmware to removable media like a USB stick or floppy.
