I don't think it's bery easy. But as (I think it was Todd V.) pointed out,
you can have an old-style and a new style mrb partition. Within each of
those, you can have different "a" partitions. In fact, you could even
share some partions between them (not root and usr, of course, but
certainly home, etc).

Take care,
