There is absolutely no basis to call partman "a _really_ crappy 
partitioner" and that that fact allone makes the whole installer "suck".
We get as many compliments for partman as comments that it could be easier 
to use.

Sure, creation was requested, but the request to create the udebs was done 
by Sven without the agreement from the rest of the d-i team and even 
while he knew that people were in general opposed to the idea.

It was never acted on because the request had no support and the resulting 
udebs would never have been accepted in the installer.
