Does anyone have any better ideas?

to save your current package selections. Then later on,
dpkg --set-selections < packages
You could also back up your /var/cache/debconf directory, so that your
Debconf selections will be remembered and presented to you as defaults
when your packages get installed after the wipe. You could even set the
debconf priority (dpkg-reconfigure debconf) to critical, and skip most
of the questions.
