As Sven posted a while ago in debian-devel, we are currently rewriting
in C the boot-floppies script that does the installation/configuration
stuff ("dinstall").

I like the idea of a "modular" dinstall, instead of the monolythic
one we have, and the current work is heading in that direction.
Please, contact Sven and "join the crew". :-)
