   This change is need in parted to be able to use paths with parted.
   In gnu.c right now it is using store_typed_open which needs a name
   like foo:bar.  This changed allows you use such things as /dev/hd2
   for example.

I don't remeber the details, and can't check them right now.  But I
think you could access stores directly via parted.  Something like
this (I don't recall the exact syntax):

 parted device:hd0s1


 parted gunzip:device:fd0

Which is why that check was there in the first place, I think.

You can do this with ext2fs for example,

settrans -ac /foo /hurd/ext2fs device:hd0s1
