"Intuitive" is a matter of opinion when it comes to user interfaces.

I have two disk-label editors that use very similar user interfaces,
one for Sun disklabels and the other for BSD disklabels.  When I heard
of disklabel -i, I thought, oh, good, someone else felt the same need.
Then I tried it and was very disappointed.

I've put the two programs in question up at and bsdlabel.c for
anyone who might care to peruse them and/or rip off pieces.  There's
also a sunlabel.doc there as well.
