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..) .
