Installing on btrfs

I'm trying to install the Debian testing on a btrfs partition, but the
installer won't let me. After manually creating the partitions and
selecting mount points, when trying to write the partition table I get
a message about the default boot loader not supporting btrfs. However,
I don't plan to use grub from this installation, since I already have
a working boot loader that does support btrfs (grub that is installed
by Ubuntu on another partition).

Is there a way around this? I would have expected some button saying:
"Yes, I'm really sure, continue" or something. I've tried using the
expert-install, but the same behavior is in place. I thought maybe I
could use cfdisk instead of partman, but I can't seem to find this

Any help or advise would be very welcome.
Thanks in advance,
