This is a bit off topic, but I am about to create an automatic
installer, that is
a candidate for a new backend. It currently works by providing a configuration
record, and then executes a few things from the installer.

(It does a lookup for a candidate installation target disk, autopartitions it,
then injects the bootloader and file-system fields into an operating-system
template, and finally does a system installation.)

I will have a look at the new protocol soon, to see if this project
can benefit from that.
