I have a student working on GNU cfdisk now, and this will most likely
also benefit the completion of the other clones, i.e. gfdisk, lfdisk and
possibly some time in the far future sfdisk.

  Apart from that, could you maybe provide a little propaganda in the
Debian GNU/kFreeBSD community, so developers might get attracted?

  Happy hacking,
