Sorry I didn't meant to suggest adding more work by writing our own installer.

I think the idea of promoting the alternate might work, maybe make it
an equal of the ubiquity installer in LubuntuLand instead of a poor
cousin as far as website space and documentation? This would also mean
that there is no extra work in making it happen but still provides all
the information for those wanting a light weight installation.
