Could choose-mirror be changed so that if certain environment variables are set then it uses values from those rather than prompt for them?

II suggest that the proxy information be specified thus:

I expect that you can already do this using
mirror/http/proxy=http://example.com:3128/ at the kernel boot prompt.

This would go some way to automating the install prcedure, especially if the idea's adapted to other packages.

Since d-i uses debconf, most questions are pre-answerable like this.

Where are the Qs and As documented?

It would be pretty trivial to front-end d-i to get a text file containing some shell script to set these.
