Exactly. This installer is based on the GRP platform which afaik depends
on some meta packages to make the major choices. The installer should
follow those toplevel ebuild choices.

That sounds like you just get the manual on top and have to give
commands at the bottom. I think what the installer should do is just
give a quick and easy path, people using an installer are probably not
interested in all those lowlevel commands (otherwise they wouldn't be
wanting to use it).
