Thanks a lot for your work and caring about this. AFAIK, partman-zfs
didn't receive much attention during last months.

I can't really test myself but I'd be happy if someone cared eough
about partman-zfs to keep it maintained.

I you have an Alioth accound, how about validating it for D-I and
pushing your patch there, then uploading?

We're in early D-I development process, so we now may want to make
things released as soon as possible so that they can get real testing.
