My opinion is: this logical partition thing was a hack that some people
might have found useful - but probably not.  I'm leaning towards
removing this "feature".

I can't see any elegant way of adding full support... the boot partition
thing is more like a file system than a partition table.  The goal
of libparted is to make everything look the same, and keep it simple
as far as possible.
