I'm concerned that even though there's some (odd) enthusiasam for the
non-power-of-two block size, there are so few real-world examples of
such things that the code is likely to not be well-tested, either now
or in the future.

Is it possible to make a modern drive use a (say) 509-byte sector for
testing purposes?
