It would have been nice to have a bit more time to comment on such a 
substantial patch, but well.

I would strongly suggest to at least not actually _show_ ext4 as an option 
as long as not all blockers are fixed, i.e. not yet list it in 
valid_filesystems (IIRC). That will allow us to upload partman-ext3 if 
needed without having to worry about confusing users.
