The problem is that will write a short partition table to the key.  It
would be nice to automatically fix up the partition table after copying
to free up the extra space (or else operate on the key directly,
copying the live partition over and setting up the partition table with
the correct geometry to begin with).  This extra space is useful for
other things, e.g. persistence.
