WTF Debian? Let’s get some sensible dependencies

On Saturday a kernel update meandered its merry way from the repos and then didn’t install cause dpkg crapped out with a “disk full” error. The “disk” in question being sda1 aka my boot partition. More here

A humble suggestion to the installer honchos: If the user is about to use a whole disk for “single-boot” install and said disk is hundreds of GB in size, why not make sda1 == 1GB instead of the current value of 350MB? I mean, future kernels will most probably not be smaller than current ones.
