So what about the already existing "autoinstall" package?

apt-cache show autoinstall:

Description: Progeny Debian auto-installation system
 This package contains the Progeny Debian auto-installation system.
 This system makes it possible to install a complete Debian system with no
 user interaction from a set of configuration files.

And "partimage"?

apt-cache show partimage:

Description: Linux/UNIX utility to save partitions in a compressed image file
 This makes it possible to save a full Linux/Windows system with a single
 operation.  In case of a problem (virus, crash, error, etc.), you just have
 to restore, and after several minutes, your entire system is restored
 (boot, files, etc.), and fully working.

Those are already working. Maybe a bit of polish or just code jarnitor
work can make them be a viable installation system for mass admin
places.
