Not really helping answer your question, but as I currently understand it,
there's no mechanism from within partman to manipulate any filesystem
options. Let's say one wants to format /home with a greater than default

creation with tune2fs, so it needs to be done manually. Sure, one can pop
off to another VT and manually format the partition and tell partman to
leave it the heck alone... I guess this could also be done in Martin's
scenario, it's just that it's more important in this scenario that it
