        When automating disk setup it would be nice to havethe ability to
        select the GPT-partition to boot from by the label assigned to it.
        Currently only the index is available for partition selection.
        Of cause that can be extracted from the output of "gpt show -l", but
        that is an avoidable additional command in automisation.

        The manual for gpt mentions that feedback to the commandline
        interface is welcome in order to integrade user wishes.
        Stumbled over while writing a setup script.
        Add "-l <label>" option to gpt command.
