What is the canonical sanctioned GNU thing?

I am not sure that I follow this.  Partitionfs, as currently
implemented, reads the specified partition table and (effectively)
generates an array of stores.  The only difference, with respect to the
partition store type, is that the store proceeds to index the array and
discard everything else.  Thus, as far as I can see, we want to use to
the same code as, one, this guarantees that the partition naming scheme
is the same for both interfaces and, two, we are not actually demanding
anything additional from partitionfs; or do you have other plans?
