That does not sound like a very good idea. If the user accepts those, he 
will likely end up with a system that will not install anyway.
(Hmm. Maybe he will as we will have gotten rid of all translations...)

An option would be to have a file with a list of udebs that should be 
selected by default and have anna read that. This list could easily be 
made architecture dependent.
For i386 (and probably most other arches) I would put partman-ext3 and 
maybe some driver module udebs in such a list.

The problem is that they are not "certainly needed". Those are selected 
already! What tbm is talking about are udebs that are only certainly 
needed on some (sub)architectures.

Alternative idea:
The main cause of memory overruns currently seems to be caused by memory 
used by translations. Could we easily introduce a new lowmem level that 
runs as normal, but only in English?
