I'm of two minds about this. I'd love to see partman-auto have support
for recipes with lvm, because I would like to be able to get rid of
autopartkit, possibly.

On the other hand, if I'm installing a system with d-i, I probably don't
want to use lvm. I prefer to keep my systems simple and I don't need the
complication of lvm on them. This is a personal preference, and maybe I
shouldn't be using the autopartitioner. But if lvm support is added, we
need to at least consider giving users the option of profiles that don't
use it.
