HeHeHe!  This strikes close to my heart!

I've been working with NetBSD since the 0.9 days (on port-mac68k), and I still have to keep asking fdisk/disklabel related questions. Every time I do this, I feel so stupid that I haven't yet figured it all out. So, the (or at least, my) answer to the above questions is a resounding "No!"
