That is not "supporting disklabels". I wrote the code to do it currectly,
a long time ago... but there was a lingering bug in it, and I never
finished. NetBSD's vnd has changed a bit since then. I could bump
up the priority on this code, and re-add the disklabel support. I
will try and do that this week.
