My choice ? Theodore Y. Ts'o is the maintainer of the libuuid1 package,
which is part of e2fsprogs. Mmm, the e2fsprog PTS lists 18 bugs, but the
bug page only shows 3 of them, apparently something is broken still.

I have no idea of this, don't know what should be involved to make this
choice, and my time would be better spent modifying libparted so the
ext2 support use the ext2lib (or whatever its name is).
In this case, we would need a further udeb out of the e2fsprogs package.
I wonder if we already have a libreiserfs udeb for the reiserfs support
of libparted. I will check this.
