Re: Support for 4KB sectors size disk ?

(Irrelevant historical sidetrack)

I thought at one point it was common for BSD derived systems to be
able to support arbitrary block sizes? Certainly I remember using
42nix (BSD 4.2+clutter on NS32016) and being able to format the MFM
drives with differing block sizes.

So technically this may be a facility that has just atrophied from lack of use.
