sounds great for people starting from a Windows system.  That's just not a
problem I've had in about 20 years.

I don't want work on win32-loader to *replace* making download of a
working network install USB image easier, since that's the change that
would help me and those I know the most.  I'm very happy if we can do
both!

Seconded. win32-loader sounds very good for some people but not for
everyone.

I've literally installed Debian on a work-provided laptop this week; it
came with a RHEL7 variant pre-installed and I didn't even boot that (I
might have to at least have a look, but I was too lazy to look up the
instructions to find the IT-supplied default LUKS passphrase).
