Bug Description

After plugins are executed (eg: username/password setup, timezone, language, etc), ubiquity automatically calls the install modules. Plugin developer does not have a choice to only execute the plugins and skip the install module conditionally (perhaps using a environment variable).

An example of a suggested fix for debconf UI is attached below.
Summary of patch: conditionally skip the install module at /usr/lib/ubiquity/ubiquity/frontend/debconf_ui.py based on an environment variable.
