It seems like you could just have a mode w/o many/any questions and a
mode that asks all the questions that are available -- i.e. Beginners
can have a beginner's mode of installation, and non-beginners can have
a non-beginner installation mode...no?

Frankly, I don't like have to answer the same questions over and over
though -- I'm hoping the automated installation procedures improve so
I can just use those (I'm not complaining mind you).  In the mean
time, I've found that partimage is finally usable for my current
situation (-;
