Subject: RAID partition size, fs type and mount point alignment

Package: partman-base
Severity: wishlist

Hi everyone. I'd like to propose a tiny change to the way the partition setup 
is displayed in partman-base. In the "(...) overview of currently configured 
partitions and mount points":

* current *
==============================================
IDE1 master (HDA) - 8.0 GB WDC.............
   #1 primary   8.0 GB   ext2   /media/hda1

RAID0 device #0 - 10.0 GB Software RAID device
   #1   10 GB   ext2   /
==============================================


* proposed *
==============================================
IDE1 master (HDA) - 8.0 GB WDC.............
   #1 primary   8.0 GB   ext2   /media/hda1

RAID0 device #0 - 10.0 GB Software RAID device
   #1            10 GB   ext2   /
==============================================


Basically, extra space/tab is needed to keep the size, fs type and mount point 
of RAID partitions aligned with these of other partitions. Alternatively, 
instead of blank space, the partition type could be shown - such as "multi" 
or "md" or just "RAID":


* alternate *
==============================================
IDE1 master (HDA) - 8.0 GB WDC.............
   #1 primary   8.0 GB   ext2   /media/hda1

RAID0 device #0 - 10.0 GB Software RAID device
   #1 multi      10 GB   ext2   /
==============================================


I know there are more important things to be dealt with but since it's 
seemingly such a simple change, I thought it'd be worth a shot.

This is already present in the current installer.
