Thanks for clarifying.

Please correct me if I am wrong: As I understand it, access to Plinth 
via a web interface is not an optional feature of FreedomBox but a 
crucial core mechanism.

To me that sounds like in its current state you will not get a working 
blend without that custom script, and I therefore recommend to postpone 
inclusion of FreedomBox into debian-blends-tasks until fixed.
