Are you going to be generalizing the UI code in dbootstrap so that the
actual UI can exist as a separate entity, and be replaced on a whim.

What I am thinking of is that groups making their own distribution may
want to standardize the installation UI to whatever they have decided on
as a UI for their specific distribution; it should be easy to do,
without having to modify dbootstrap. 

This is where what you are up to may overlap with what -admintool wants
to be up to (afia can tell)... a UI module that asks the questions it is
told to, then passes the answers back for processing.
