Anaconda has never given you the ability to control partition layout,
beyond the "force to be a primary partition" checkbox.  If you want
partition in a specific order, or certain partitions as extended, you've
always had to partition manually (even in a kickstart, you have to
partition in %pre to get a specific layout).  The anaconda developers
don't think you have any need to determine your own layout.

I don't speak for anybody but myself - that's enough trouble.
