:This means that the first GPT partition is accessed as
:DragonFly slice 0, eg ad6s0.
:It would be easier for users and more natural, compared to current use of
:slice numbers for MBR, that first GPT partition was slice 1;
:is this possible?
:Otherwise disklabel[64](8) will have to be updated to very carefully descri=
:different use of slice 0.

:PS: Now I can at least get GPT working ;-)

    The problem is that everything related to gpt starts at 0. If
    we use s1 for gpt partition 0 things get very confusing very
