However, I think I would like to see it be a bit more complete than sysinstall in the area of geom partition labeling (concat/strip/raid/encryption), and perhaps also ZFS support. I realize that adds complexity a fair amount, but one of the biggest areas of feature lack in sysinstall today is that you are basically stuck with the original BSD partition structure and UFS, whereas we expect increasing numbers of users to deploy ZFS. We don't have boot support currently, but being able to set up /data as a ZFS file system would be great. Today, people have to do an initial install on, say, a small boot partition and then relabel/deal with the rest of the disk, boot a live CD, or worse, discover they have to repartition, which really fails to expose some of the excellent ease-of-use, auto-configuration, etc, features that we otherwise have in this area.
