I'd like to see that happen.

Note that as I understand there are also problems booting the kernel 
outside the installer (i.e. just upgrading an installed system), this 
does not seem to be a Debian Installer issue, but rather a powerpc kernel 
or kernel configuration issue.
This of course means that the debian-boot team can do very little about it 
and that you need help from the kernel maintainer. My expectation is that 
the installer will work just fine again once the kernel issue is solved.

See also bug #366620 that is currently being discussed on the 
debian-kernel list.
