Strange, I thought I had given you one with the example above :-)

You will just need to make sure that you grep on the regular owner (the 
component/udeb the template comes from) _plus_ the name of the template, 

# debconf-get-selections --installer | \
> grep "<owner> <template>" | awk '{print $4}'

I would avoid using the owner "d-i", as that is really a pseudo-owner only 
used for preseeded questions.

Take a look at /var/lib/cdebconf/questions.dat sometime to see how the 
raw "database" looks.
