I can not get parted to put a name on a dos partition such that

going on?   Using parted would be nice since I get partition table
creation and mkfs all in one, but being able to specifiy the name
is essential.
Answering my own question: NAME isn't supported for msdos partitions
so the bug here is two fold.  1) that it doesn't complain but silently
does nothing, and 2) that it isn't supported for msdos partitions. mkdosfs
manages to do so, so why doesn't parted?
