	Right now, disk labels can't handle really large disks. Some
people say that the way to fix this is to complete the "wedges"
code. However, no documentation exists for "wedges", or it is at least
very incomplete. It would be useful for someone to:

1) Write up a summary of the Wedges design so that people can finish
   the implementation.
2) Write up proper docs so that users can use the parts we have (and
   so that they will be able to use the whole thing once finished.)
