Ah, I just noticed that there is already a newt-based parted frontend
(nparted), which will do for "dialog" mode.  The standard parted should
suffice for "readline" mode; I think it should be easy enough to put
together something in Gtk for "gnome" mode, plus a shell script to
multiplex the three of them based on $DEBIAN_FRONTEND, and we should be
all set.
