Oh, that is what Richard did. Well, we can add a similar prep flag to
libparted, no problem there.

Still i had hopes that altough parted doesn't provide for it, libparted
would export the set_system_type or something such function provided by
the per partition table entries.

Anyway, i will now go ahead and implement such a flag for now.
