Package: debian-installer
Severity: normal

I'm doing a network install via modem.

I've discovered d-i downloading, amongst others, jfs and lvm udebs.

I won't be using either, so this is simply wasted time.

I suggest that downloading and installing optional udebs be deferred
until it's clear they are wanted.

Either they're priority: standard and they're used by default....or
priority: optional and they're used only when  specifically requested
by users.

Maybe in some cases, one may wonder if this or that udeb should be
downloaded (or included in an image), or just made optional, but I
don't think we need an extra mechanisme than package priorities.
