The installation system is based upon different modules (e.g. filesystem
creation, language settings, ...).  The user interface is modular, too.
AFAIK we had one module for userinteraction in sarge, the textual one
with the red boxes on blue ground.  Etch will ship with another one, a
graphical one (based upon gtk and framebuffer).

The graphical user interface supportes languages the textual user
interface does not support, since they need special characters.  The gui
can compose special characters to display the signs of those complex

Please see
for further information about that.

Now that I'm rereading it, I must confess, that this sentence could need
some clarification.
