The problem with ZFS support in the installer is well known. Help is

Of course it would. Debian needs it for BtrFS too. They're
essentially the same changes.
It seems that you're willing to spend some time improving D-I to
support M:1:N filesystem models, why don't you bring this up in

Yes. Same for devfs. Why is that a problem?

To archieve this we need more feedback from people like you, who see
things from a production perspective and know better which missing
features are important, which bugs are showstoppers, etc. Please
don't stop telling us.
