All very good questions. See my recent "Shooting sysinstall/SADE
geometry warning in the head" thread. Seems maybe GEOM_PART_BSD
took a page from that book and should be smacked also.
I don't see why FreeBSD is making such a mess of geometries with
modern SATA/IDE disks. We seem to be the standout here. :-(
