It was when I looked too, but that was some time ago.  I started work on
something I called cparted a while ago, which was a cfdisk-like front end
to parted.  It doesn't yet support all the flashy features of parted
(partition moving, resizing), but it has the advantage that it is a
familiar interface.

Current status is that it can handle msdos and gpt table creation, and
partition creation and deletion.  Tested only on ia64.  Not touched it
since March, but I can certainly make the code available.
