I believe third point above is inaccurate: Debian-installer has hooks to 
pass hints to packages (debconf preseeding) and hooks to execute shell 
scripts.  What is currently possible is only the latter: Spawn a shell 
script late in the install process to replace init-related packages 
already installed by debian-installer.
