I notice that DragonFlyBSD has made some progress on their NG installer.
There's some information about its design here:

and some code here:

Using or building on an existing UI abstraction would save a lot of work.
The Linux installers I've looked at seem to use separate code for each
type of front-end (eg. console, gui), but having a common API would
have advantages.

The only other abstract gui I'm aware of is PicoGUI, but it looks like
the project has been abandoned by its author.
