partitionmanager in Live CD

FWIW, I have used Partitionmanager on every install (probably about 20) I've
done lately. This has been both in Kubuntu and Linux Mint KDE. I have never
had any problems or undesirable outcomes from use. I would like to also add
that it is for obvious reasons a useful tool to have on a Live CD / DVD

I would love to see this in Kubuntu by default and do not see a partition
management application as optional on a full install. Everyone has USB
Sticks these days...
