I have played with uCilbc on debian-installer, never got the complete thing done
though.  It would be really neat to use on d-i.  I've thought about, once d-i is
back in full swing, making it work with uclibc on as many archs as possible.
That would mean packaging it and tricking the buildd's into building udeb's for
use wiht uclibc.  That would be sneaky.
