Bug#246841: qualified success on iBook G4

I hope that finaly I understand how newworld boots.  :-) I suppose

returns newworld and parted_names/newworld translates this to hfs for

You should remove from the templates file partman/filesystem_short/hfs
and partman/filesystem_long/hfs and add
partman/filesystem_short/newworld and partman/filesystem_long/newworld.
This will make the script update.d/newworld_visuals unnecessary and it
should be removed.  (The scripts in update.d are the slowest thing of
