No, this is beyond what I was talking about. The way we were doing it,
we started with:

#!/bin/sh -e

Each call of di_system_prebaseconfig_append would result in a single cp
operation for the file the function was working on to that skeleton
script. It made no sense to generate such a dull script on the fly.

You are right; we do need d-i automation. Someone has to do it...
