I'm currently reworking the mac-fdisk man page (which should be in the
install section) to cover the 'reorder to place bootstrap partition before
MacOS' trick. Plus I've fixed the problem with reordering partitions - on
shifting partitions downward, there was a stupid off-by-one error in the
code so the new partition index was always one less than intended. Very
confusing when moving partition 4 to position 5 :-) Right now the correct
semantics of reordering is 'insert partition <old> _before_ partition <new>
but that doesn't seem the obvious one.
