So, perhaps only "print" should be affected.
Also, what's a good interface for setting the default unit?

$PARTED_UNITS, ~/.parted.conf, /usr/lcoal/etc/parted.conf

Partition8 ends at 5185.041 and partition 9
starts at 5185.072. What´s with the .031 MB
in between? In some cases, (between 10 and 11)
it´s 0.32MB..

There is some free space, and some partition table metadata in between.

So how do I know whether I can use that free space etc
(and if, which position [im fractional MBs] to move the
partition to?)

Wouldn´t it be much easierand more exact to
specify sectors, clusters etc which simply
cannot be fractional?

You mean sectors, cylinders, etc.?  Answer: they don't mean much
to (most) users (including me!).

That too,  and (more useful for me) linear sector numbers,
disk blocks (like fdisk)...

My problem with fractional MBs is that it´s almost impossible to
figure out where *exactly* a partition ends and the next one starts.
