Bug#678611: debian-installer: Add more early/late hooks

Package: debian-installer
Severity: wishlist

Dear Maintainer,

As I setup a preseed configuration based on hands-off[1], I get troubles
configuration "d-i mirror/" and "d-i apt-setup/localX" depending on the
network configuration.

I'm using a full CD, so adding entries to sources.list is optional, but
if the network is up, I would like to configure them and make a full

The HandsOff early_scripts are run by "d-i preseed/early_command" and
when using a full CD, this happens before network get configured.

My proposal is to add pre/post hooks at all the steps, with this I could
register a "d-i base-installer/early_command" which tests if network is
up and the mirror reachable and configure apt-setup.
