Well, if it is not useful for the user why put it in lenny? If someone
needs to make a custom image with a compiled parted, he can grab that
udeb and put together. I see no gains in have it on lenny.

Guido is in the way of providing a proposed patch with that backported
from 1.9 version of parted. Depending on how deepth is that, I'll try
to get an exception for that from RT and then we'll have a proper
multipath support on lenny.
