I'm hoping to replace most of the geom code in sysinstall for 9.0 - it
needs to parse the output of geom_gettree, use gpart to create
partitions etc. So far I've got code that can parse the existing
partition layout but not much more. Take a look at
user/ae/usr.sbin/sade in svn to see how to interact with geom - ae@ has
been working on adding support for gpt, zfs etc. to sade.
