Most of my / partitions are 4800M, 5600M or 7200M, to facilitate interchange
with minimal need to do any re-partitioning. I have bunches of multiboot test
systems, and do a lot of cloning. There's no way I could keep track of what I
have without a written record of what lives where. Luckily, the only partitioner
ever used here[1] creates logs with tables that inventory each disk wonderfully.
