My main concern is stability.  Unfortunately, it is hard to test the
HFS code because there is no HFS support in Linux.

I've been thinking perhaps the best solution is to port Parted to OSX.
I doubt it would be very hard.  (How naive I am!)  I might even have
a crack at it on my brother's iBook.

Speaking of testing, I think we could probably do a lot better than
Parted's current regression tests.  e2fsprogs has much better tests.
Any volunteers?
