This issue only affects installs from full CD or DVD and really only
matters in cases where a network requires that a (non-transparent!)
proxy server be used for all http access.

It's also easy to fix, it just needs to ask the mirror/http/proxy
question. The only tricky part is that choose-mirror will not be
available to ask it. Simply copyig the template to another udeb would
do, athough it's not a very elegant solution.
