You can customize a WordPress installation by simply making your
custom install script, calling it install.php, and putting it in the
wp-content folder before installation.

Your install.php can do anything it wants, it's just straight included
at the beginning of the wp-admin/includes/upgrade.php script. And
almost all of the functions in upgrade.php are pluggable, so you can
redefine/replace them easily.
