Alternative stable filesystems like jfs, xfs and so on are not (yet) 
supported via kickstart partitioning even though d-i supports 'em. I 
would like to see this feature added and am willing to try adding it 
myself but could use some mentoring.
I am looking for the hooks to add this functionality. Cursory 
examination of sources for debian-installer and libdebian-installer were 
not fruitful.



Some days it's just not worth chewing through the restraints...
