partman and installations to MTD (flash)

Flash is getting cheaper and there are now devices which have enough
flash to install a full blown Debian to it.  My question is how to
change partman to support installations to flash.  Under Linux, MTD is
used to access flash: it provides both a block and char device of the
device.  A file system like JFFS is normally used.  MTD doesn't have
traditional partitions like disks; in terms of the installer, we
should probably just take the existing partitions that are recognized
by the kernel (i.e. you cannot delete or create partitions, or resize

How can this be handled in partman?
