OK, so what about being the "deluxe" installation UI on CD/broadband
installs as Randolph has suggested?

The question here is whether there is a significant benefit from using
the frame buffer as opposed to using X.  I think there is.

This is what pango does for a living, a requirement for gtk-fb (and
maybe gtk-x11 as well?)  Since gtk-fb requires pango, thats just
something else that would have to be included in the installation
udeb.
