Hmmm again. That is not really what happens, especially not if you compare 
it to the current situation.

If you have time, could you try it a bit more extensively and maybe 
describe a bit how you think expert mode now works with the test images?

The same request for others: I'm really interested to find out if the new 
concept feels natural to users who do not have it explained to them 

Some hints:
- default installation is basically unchanged; only difference is if you
  back up to the menu
- expert installation really is completely different from current
  situation, please give it a try!
- the option to enable dmraid/multipath support is somewhat separate from
  the change in the expert mode concept

Images available at: http://people.debian.org/~fjp/tmp/d-i/settings/

I will send an explanation of the concept at the end of the weekend.
