Rather than modify dbootstrap, you just need to make sure you do
everything dbootstrap does -- which isn't really all that much.  Most
of its work is prompting the user ;-)

I don't think you'll find it's particularly difficult -- there are a
couple of similar projects out there (hopefully the authors of those
will read this and announce themselves)
