Perhaps it would be useful to port Parted to Mac OSX?  Is that hard?
Anyone got a box I can ssh into?

I certainly won't have time in the next month to do this, though :/
Any volunteers?

It basically involves adding libparted/macosx.c, and implementing
all the functions in PedArchitecture (i.e. PedDiskArchOps, and
PedDeviceArchOps).  There are already two examples for you to work
from: libparted/linux.c and libparted/gnu.c.

Also, it would involve getting everything else to compile, but this
isn't very difficult.  I even got Parted running on MS-DOS (via djgpp)
a while back!  (But, I didn't know how to implement libparted/dos.c or
libparted/windows.c... lots of reading required!)
