It also would be wrong in a whole bunch of other scenarios:

peter at overcee[12:07AM]~/fbp4-1132> cat /etc/fstab
/dev/twed0p2    /       ufs     rw      1       1
/dev/twed0p3    /usr    ufs     rw      2       2

Also..  'a' .. 'h' is wrong even for disklabel.  If you're using
GEOM_PART_BSD, you've got something like 20 partition letters
available instead of just 8.
