FWIW, I've posted instructions on how to run a program from setup recently
(but can't find the actual message at the moment).  To summarize, simply
create a shell script named that calls that program (you may need
to call it through bash, too), put it in /etc/postinstall, and run setup
in "Keep" mode.  The script will be run during the postinstall phase (even
though you won't install anything).
