We've offered Windows resizing for years now, so yeah I'm fine with
continuing to do so.

Automatically shrinking is a little concerning, yeah.  However
automatically selecting the single available disk and attempting to do
autopart in the free space is reasonable.  If we can effectively tell
people what's going to happen, I don't see a problem with it.

That would be handy.  I could also write a guide, or at least edit it.

The firstboot situation has become extremely complex, and I don't know
what we are going to do about it.
