I recently performed a manual installation of Debian, bypassing
partman (in order to bypass a severe problem with partman and/or
yaboot that was breaking another OS), and thus configured the fstab
manually. I used devices, just like I always do when editing

UUIDs give me that /dev/hdx or /dev/sdx don't, aside from being
harder to read and a pain to setup?
