Actually it's more of a tasksel/d-i issue. I've thought it would be nice
to include 915resolution in the laptop task, but I don't know for sure
if it's good to include it on all laptops. It's probably safe, since it
seems to probe for the appropriate intel graphics chipset before doing
anything, but the init script prints an ugly message in that case. d-i
could be modified to check for the right chipset and auto-install it,
but I've not taken the time to work out exactly how to do that. 

IIRC I also needed to manually configure 915resolution for my laptop,
though that may have improved since.

I believe that new versions of the intel drivers are planned to obsolte
915resolution eventually, BTW.
