I've seriously considered getting rid of it as well, or at least setting
the debconf priority to low and setting the default be to not having the
mount points. While it's valuable to have the feature, I think only a
very small number of people need it. However, I didn't want to break d-i
by removing it at this late a stage, and I figured it would go away
during the transition later on. If we can switch the default and not
break d-i though, I say go for it since it's causing problems.
