This would be very nice to have right from the start, for example
in DiskDruid. I'm sure a lot of dists would not yet be willing to
take it in though (apart from Rock maybe?). SGI did the XFS
install disks, though. Maybe something similiar. Curses "GUI"
as well as X (Xaw would be ideal/servers, GTK for prettiness).
