Sorry, but depending on parted-udeb for this is IMO not acceptable.

Note that on x86 we already have fdisk installed, but parsing the output 
of that is IMO equally unacceptable.

I have recently wanted a simple utility that would return the partition 
type of a certain partition, and now it seems we want a simple utility 
that returns the type of partition table used.
I guess someone will have to write those. using libparted for that is OK, 
but installing parted just to get a disk label is not.
