I've discussed it with other member of parted team (the one
responsable by the >512-byte sector support) and we concluded that
it's still too early to enable it in Parted and partman. The risk of
serious unknow bugs is too high since this code is not yet well tested.

Work is being done, at Parted side, to fully support it in near
future... unsure if it'll happen for Lenny.
