Simplicity. We wanted to get started as fast as possible. But given the
ever increasing complexity of install.sh, this should be the goal, yet.

Quite possible – please raise that idea on the pkg-fso-maint list. Some
others have expressed interested in trying to port d-i to the FreeRunner
(Steffen Moeller, IIRC). He’s subscribed to the list.

Do you know any d-i knowledgeable person that has a FreeRunner and would
be able to mentor this project?
