re: Dropping edlabel in favour of 'disklabel -i'

   Way back before disklabel grew the -i option edlabel provided a
   relatively easy way to interactively edit a disklabel.
   Now that disklabel does provide -i, (and in fact the usage is easier
   than edlabel), would anyone object to dropping edlabel, especially
   given that edlabel was only ever built for a subset of ports.

i don't think this is a good idea:

   text    data     bss     dec     hex filename
   9613    1016     600   11229    2bdd /sbin/edlabel
  38654     904   10120   49678    c20e /sbin/disklabel

one of the reasons edlabel exists was to to be smaller for media.
