gnu-parted isn't as good-looking as gparted

Hi all,
     I installed Debian Squeeze 6.0. I used the graphical installer to
install Squeeze.  While partitioning it was using gnu parted. While I
was working with that, I was surprised to see that I had to do 3
things, delete the old partitions, give the new sizes for partitions
and then say "Done setting up the partition " or something to that

If I compare it vis-a-vis gparted (or Gnome partition Editor) which
Ubuntu uses as the default partitioner for a newbie, its much more
comfortable. It took me say 5-10 minutes to figure out what I had to

I am not trying to criticize but ask if it has been felt by other
people too. It might be wrong in my part to compare the two
partitioners but that's the way it is.

Lastly, where I can see a broad roadmap of what we can see in the next
few versions perhaps? Is there a roadmap page somewhere ?
