Just out of curiosity: Your description makes me assume that the
installer in the future still don't do things like partitioning,
formating or installing a basic set of packages in the background while
the user (which has a high latency/response time) is asked questions
about the root password to use, users accounts to create or which
timezone the system is in?

Just wondering, because the Ubuntu installer does things like that,
which makes the installation a little bit quicker.
