Thanks for the quick reply. The downside of that would be that the
questions would be asked during installation and not during

Maybe I can add some magic to only pick up environment data if the value
in debconf is the same as default in the template but I'll have to give
that some thought to see if that could cause problems in other cases.
That would also allow preseeding (which is probably also a problem now).
