Yes, when i saw James proposal i tought about it, and i think
that rewriting or modifing it to be a libparted frontend is
the way to go beacuse the current src is a mess. It can also
be used by Linux.

If you want we can work on this.

I've got all what is not really Linux specific to compile under the Hurd.
And yes quite unportable, 100k of patch :P. I'm testing and polishing
last details, but in few days it will be finished.
