d-i is modular, things might be done, then undone; presumably so that
they can be done again later. Not really surprising.

If a d-i component have new prerequisites, they need to be fulfilled,
and code might be needed for that. Not really surprising either.

Well, that's how I learned you're booting a squeeze d-i to install
wheezy (along with things like package versions); on a side note, I'm
happy to finally see what I asked for a whole day ago.

Anyway, I'm pretty sure we'll concentrate on releasing a proper d-i
for wheezy, instead of trying to support strange combinations like
yours. Was that ever advertised as a supported combination? If so,
