I agree. Ubiquity doesn't support md RAID or LVM; and its Hardy version
has accessibility issues in its timezone widget. And as you say:

Agreed, but my understanding was that *right now*, d-i doesn't have a
"click-on-your-desktop" mode. I meant to imply in my previous post that
Ubiquity might be a short-term kludge (rather than a permanent solution)
to address the OP's needs until d-i is ready.

Perhaps the OP should contact the d-i people directly and discuss
"click-on-your-desktop" support (including bounties) with them.
