Well i wrote some code that proccessed the partitions from data in /proc
(posted it a few days back), it doesnt detect filesystems on the
partitions, i was going to try and automount filesystems to workout what
filesystem they are...
That program is doing a similar thing to libfdisk i guess, so we wont
need both, what i did was rough and i havent gotten any feedback yet, so
who knows.

Im going to try and write some main-menu code in the next day or so, we
should be able to use multiple partitoning tools depending on whats
