Speaking of which, do you plan to do more, like adding partitions from
FreeBSD disklabels ? I've made a patch against mbrlabel to read FreeBSD
disklabels and add partitions found inside. It's pretty handy when you
have a dual-boot setup.

I guess the same could be done for OpenBSD, and maybe there are other OSes
out there that use labels.
