This is really a rather ugly solution because there really is no need to 
generate the initrd twice. It is also RC buggy as it means you mess 
around with another package's conf file, which is a policy violation.

On IRC I suggested two alternative ways to do this:

in base-installer, or to include a one-liner preseed file in the initrd 
at build time.

Maybe we should let this slide because of the closeness of the release, 
but please implement it in a cleaner manner in the near future.
