Are you sure you will lose the pre-rolled profile?  It seems to me that
once the Select step is done, dselect saves the list of packages
somewhere.  I think I can go into the Select step, choose something, and
then choose "Quit" instead of the Install step and it will remember that I
want that package next time I run dselect.  Your mileage may vary though,
as I know nothing about apt. 

Hope this helps,
