I updated the wip-newt-installer, with a first testable version of the
installer. As it requires to rebuild the world and it is not built by
berlin yet, here's an iso version of the installer.

It can be tested with Qemu with the command line:

qemu-system-x86_64 -m 1024 -smp 1 -boot menu=on -drive file=<iso-path> -vga std

Or, on a real hardware, for the bravest :p

Note that remains to be done:
* The partitioning page
* The page to select a desktop environment (gnome, xfce, ...)
* The final step of system reconfiguration

Since my last email, I also added an abstraction layout (in the
gnu/bootloader.scm idea), so that if we want to add a new (gtk3?)
installer in the future, we can still use the same grounds.

I feel that now is a good time to gather remarks/ideas/patches before
diving into the last part. Plus, I'm terrible UI design so any help
tuning logo, colors and button placement would be much appreciated :)
