Bug#401175: debian-installer: Could offer to set a label on swap partitions

Package: debian-installer
Severity: minor

The "partition disks" dialog presents an option to set a partition label 
if "use as" is set to ext3 filesystem.  If "use as" is set to "swap 
area" the label field is not included.  It is possible to set partition 
labels on swap partitions using "mkswap -L".  Labels on swap partitions 
are useful so that /etc/fstab can refer to the swap partition as 
/dev/disk/by-label/swap.  I suggest the D.I. allows the user to set a 
label for their swap partition, and furthermore offers a default label 
of "swap".
