The partition map doesn't have separate types for HFS and HFS+.
the difference, you need to actually look at the volume header inside
how does one look at the volume header?
The NewWorld bootblock partition does actually have an
HFS filesystem on it, but it uses a special partition type.
is that one of them is looking at the filesystem, while the other is
only looking at the type field in the partition map.
