I think that partman-ext3 could be merged into partman-basicfilesystems,
which it almost entirely duplicates in templates and code. This would
probably save 200k for normal installs, as well as making ext3 available
in lowmem level 2.

Breaking ext2 support out into a partman-ext2 would also be possible; it
could probably be a quite small udeb that relies on
partman-basicfilesystems for templates and code and only pulls in the
ext2-modules and provides the flag files to make ext2 a listed
