lol :) Andrew, that was the whole point. :^)
I wanted something that keeps the startpoint _exact_ as it was in case
it isn't cylinder-aligned.

I hacked something together and it worked, but i was wondering if
there's another, more efficient way to accomplish the same. Just for
clearity, here's what i have:
constraint = ped_constraint_any( device );
ped_disk_set_partition_geom ( disk, part, constraint, orig_start,
new_end ) ;
ped_constraint_destroy ( constraint );

ped_geometry_set_start ( & part ->geom, orig_start ) ;
constraint = ped_constraint_exact ( & part ->geom ) ;

The resulting constraint does what i want. fixed start and a
cylinder-aligned end.

However, i cannot escape the feeling there should be an easier way to
accomplish the same...

Any insights are appreciated (no rush though, this'll work for the
