Looks like we should drop gdisk for squeeze


gdisk 0.5.1-1 is currently in squeeze and sid and has the RC bug
#599437 open against it. There's a new upstream version available
(0.6.13), but the change is huge (39 files changed, 9069
insertions(+), 2593 deletions(-)); IMHO the changes are far too large
for an update now.

The code in the older version of gdisk looks nasty, I'll be honest,
and I would rather see it removed. Small popcon usage and no rdeps.

Guillaume, I know you have the new upstream version waiting on a
sponsor. I might be persuaded to sponsor that for you targetting
