Place preseed.cfg inside a directory (say custom-installation) and

was supposed to write some docs but was waiting for the interface to
stabilize (was also proposing to have similar hooks in the alternate
CD installer for instance and if/once that is implemented things might
Lupin was mostly designed to support wubi/loopinstallations, as of
today I wasn't aware of anyone else making use of the package

approach and I do not think that addressing 2 and 3 would create any
issue regarding wubi, but we are in feature freeze. Best bet is to
open a bug report in launchpad.
