} I noted, btw, that 'gpt restore' will restore the gpt from a backup,=20

Actually, it will restore the "protecting mbr", and it will
automatically adjust it if you are restoring to a disk of a different
size. 'gpt backup' produces a text file, so you can look at it to
see what is saved. However, you should not edit it.
