Well, it would be possible to use this in boot-floppies and get rid of
libfdisk, which I'm sure would make life a lot easier for mips
porters and such.

But we'd have to replicate the API that libfdisk offers, or at least
make sure equivalent functions are implemented, I guess.  Sounds like
a lot of work for nominal payback, at least as far as bf goes.
