Request "Restore" option to remove existing CoreStorage volumes

As part of reimaging machines with the "Restore" DeployStudio task, there's an option to "Convert to CoreStorage" but there is not an option to remove an existing CoreStorage volume on a selected drive.

I'd like to request a "Delete existing CoreStorage" checkbox be added to the "Restore" DeployStudio task. That will make reimaging FileVault 2-encrypted Macs much easier.

The command to delete an existing CoreStorage volume:

diskutil cs delete Logical_Volume_Group_UUID_here

I have a post on how to use this command and how to determine the CoreStorage Logical Volume Group UUID:
