Breaking their installations isn't fair. So maybe dual
boot/multiboot is just too complicated for normal users and it's
not possible right now to design something safe for them? And if
so, that's fine, then the installer should deny dual boot
installations with pre-existing Linux when using the
default-automatic partitioning and installation path. Only allow it
for custom installations.

Agreed, dual Linux booting is complicated. Dual, meaning, one Linux,
one Windows, is quite a common thing: most people coming from Windows
will want this, so it must be handled.

Two Linux is the next step, but how to do it should be an informed
decision by the "admin". Not exactly automated.
