I still have a Tetris cdebconf plugin for the graphical installer that
works well.  One can dig the list archive to find a link to a mini-iso.

But having a Tetris as a standalone question is not something really
interesting, as what is desirable is to be able to play something
*while* the computer is working.

One idea was to add some "tabs" to the graphical installer, one with the
actual questions, another with a terminal and yet another with the
Tetris.  I also might have a proof of concept lying around on some hard

I will not continue to work on these ideas soon, so if anyone is
interested to pick that up, that's welcome. :)
