One thing that would make installing to more advanced slice setups easier, would be
a 'skip disk setup and start copying files' option. You would have to set up slices and
partitions outside the installer and mount everything properly under /mnt, but then
have the rest of the installation process done by the installer. That is copying files,
setting up config files, adding users/setting passwords and getting fstab done.
