Yes, I strongly support the idea of working on the d-i, possibly
adding it pieces from other installers, as pickaxe.
IMHO the new d-i has a really good design and it's completely modular,
which is a bless for CDD. I just finished to develop a custom
installable ISO for AGNULA/DeMuDi based on the d-i, and it works
People on debian-boot are doing a great job, if you have new ideas
please just join them and try to work directly inside the d-i.
