:Are you planning on requiring a disklabel on GPT's, or will there be 
:support for direct consumption of these partitions by filesystems and swap?
:- Jason

    It looks like it will be possible to treat a GPT table as a disklabel,
    with any recursion handled as slices (like recursive MBRs are handled
    now), so direct consumption should be possible.

    The only issue is that we have a limit of 16 'partitions' verses the
    128 supported by GPT, so that limit will have to be expanded.
