Duh ! It's not acceptable I think. A partitionner that kills everything
in your system is of use to a very limited set of users. Questioning
what part of the system it can take over is way better.

Instead of merging both version, you may simply want to add that feature
in your autopartkit and then replace the one we have in CVS ... :-)

And yes the autopartkit with the questions is used by the french
debian-educ distribution (in fact it was the old autopartkit for parted
1.4 but it's almost the same code base).
