A few other notes:

I was planning on removing the "change the partitioning by writing
through the 'c' partition" code in -current now, I trust that you
have not implemented that ?

You are aware of newfs trying to change the partition type.  I'm
not happy with how that is done and not really happy about it in
general, now that we have g_label.

Never attribute to malice what can adequately be explained by incompetence.
