I guess you have some problems with autopartitioning on 2.6-kernels,
that's why I havent included them on the images I create. If someone
could look into either getting autopartkit working together with lvm2,
or getting partman working with lvm. There is so many benefits from
having at least the datapartitions on lvm, but also the system
partitions on lvm is nice. for the experienced system administrator
there is no trouble setting this by hand, but the unexperienced would
find it much easier to have everything on one large partition. Well,
you dont see why this gives you trouble until you need it. And just to
prevent that someone creates a 200GB large partition just because he
didn't know how to do things otherwise, we do need better lvm support
for the installer using 2.6 kernel.

I think the ldap stuff is one of the easiest things to work around.
there is far more trouble in getting other packages upgraded nicely.
Last time I tried to do an apt-get dist-upgrade from woody to sarge,
There was trouble with at least openoffice, and some ltsp-packages.
It's funny to observe that none of these are official debian packages.
The ltsp-packages might be better integrated now, but I havent tested
