The idea is that we don't ask questions in postinst. I think the way to handle
this would be to have the build process for sysinst (at build.sh release time)
would generate a timezone list, put it on the install media, and preinst would
just read it to make the pretty selection box.
I think there will be a few cases like this where we have to move things around
and deal with them early to work around the interactiveness of sysinst. Good
I want to be able to answer the questions, and then go get coffee and return to
a login prompt on my newly installed machine.
