Finding time for parted has been a challenge recently.

If you can, that'd be great and would accelerate the process.  I would
no longer have an excuse not to push your patches.  I nearly pushed
without a test case, but your changes are large enough that I cannot
do that in good conscience.

I didn't want to require you to write a test, but in the end my time
constraints appear to be having the same effect.  Sorry about that.
