Binary package hint: debian-installer

wishlist for maveric: when using btrfs as root file system, I would like to set the compress mount option; this is currently impossible, because 'mount options' onyl offers a choice of general options

side note: installing Ubuntu 10.10 alpha 2 on a btrfs takes forever (about 2 hours until now, 72% done); has this to do with #570805 ?

It would also be useful at this stage to be able to set "compress" or "compress=lzo" for workloads needing faster compression.
