Thinking this further, we should probaby have an
Install-Debian-on-multiple-machines virtual appliance / live USB image
with a DHCP/tftp/http server and a proxy to install more than one
Debian system with network boot on a site with bad connectivity. That
way, one would only transfer the barely necessary amount of software,
and only once.
