Another solution is to use gparted and the C++ libraries which go with it. I
know that there is a dogma of not using c++, but given the development ongoing
on gparted, and that we would basically need to do fork all that development
if we want to do our stuff.

Adding C++ libraries will add more or less 1MB to the image.
