Bug#405511: choose-mirror: Consolidate templates to save memory

Package: choose-mirror
Version: 2.11
Severity: minor

There are a few questions in choose-mirror that currently have separate 
templates for FTP and HTTP where that does not seem really needed.
The candidates for consolidation are: hostname, directory and proxy.

Having the templates double means double translations and thus quite a bit 
of unnecessary memory usage. The text for the templates is slightly 
different, but that looks solvable using variables.

Note that some transition will be needed as other udebs use the relevant 
debconf variables, but that should be possible using debconf's REGISTER 
function. It is possibly easiest to first change other udebs over to use 
new variables before making the real changes in choose-mirror.
