Here's the slippery slope. 99% of the time I don't care what is going
on and I don't care about rounding slop. So you can default anyway
you want for rounding. But I can imagine that you really want NetBSD
to be at an exact place on the disk down to the C/H/S spec. How do
you get both options?
I also have an idea. Have modes of operation for sysinst:
So in this case, the expert gets no rounding, the ordinary gets it,
and the naive might not even see this question, because we choose
an installation schema for him.
