I think that if you read partman-* you can get the picture and see how
you can make it to work. But I won't commit it until we have it done.

After we have it more or less usable we can start to integrate it on
d-i but let's not push things on modules until it has been done.

Feel free to contact me if there's something that I can help with ;-)

Not needed for now since I do prefer to wait until we have something
more usable to push it in.
