Something like 'partlabel' or 'disklabel' would be better. It also seems a rather trivial script for its own package...Aren't there already ways to do this? For example, # tune2fs -L <some_label> /dev/[sh]d[a-z][1-15]
If you're looking for naming a partition, then yes, that method works (assuming, of course, that it is ext). If you're looking for a disklabel (also known as a partition table), then that method won't work, but you can use parted or the appropriate fdisk tool. It's somewhat difficult to tell, since there is no long description. Consider this a request for one.
