GTK fe, how to get external parameters


i was thinking how to get from the "outer world" some parameters needed by the frontend that are actually hardcoded inside it ( it's the case of the string that identifies the main menu). This because the debconf should be a general-purpose configuration tool and shouldn't be tight the fe to the debian-installer only (even if it's developed with the debian-installer as main usage). I think the easiest way is to get them from a shell global variable, but i would like to ask you if there is a more "official" way to do this (some times ago cjw mentioned plugins..) .
