No, the disc is well-partitionated, but I selected this 120 (110) GB
piece for the /home filesystem.
aero% df -h
Filesystem Size Used Avail Capacity Mounted on
/dev/wd0a 964M 550M 365M 60% /
/dev/wd0f 1.9G 178M 1.6G 9% /var
/dev/wd0e 28G 18G 8.4G 67% /usr
/dev/wd0g 110G 21G 84G 20% /home
/dev/wd0h 1.9G 8.0K 1.8G 0% /tmp
kernfs 1.0K 1.0K 0B 100% /kern

Okay, this is a pretty simple but cool workaround.
