Yes, for the mid/long term we'd definitively like to provide some mechanism
for this, and tbh. with the rework of the installer and how it handles the
config to a single point of "truth", and how the new low-level installer
(used for the Text-UI mode) works it will be possible to add quite a few
ways (from simple json config lives on a separte partition of the installer
image to some web-based varians with API and a password defined on the image,
...); just see the "start-session" command implementation [0] for what's
required between actual installer and UI, it's really not that much anymore:
