Heh, and I always create 'e' so there is no confusion :D, since 'a' is
quasi-reserved for root-partitions. With 'b' for swap [1] and c and d
reserved by the system, this leaves 'e' as the first free one.

Hm. Point taken. Ah well, it's a matter of preferences, I suppose.

[1] I'm not sure if there's still any real good reason to, but I prefer
    to have my swap divided over multiple disks, if possible multiple
    controllers. At the very least, it's for hysterical reasons.
