The idea is that you have only the GPT table. The wedges are just the
representation of the inidividual entries. There is no need for a disk

I couldn't newfs anything until I edited the BSD disk label; though that could have been a result of confusion on my part...

I found rebooting allowed me to newfs. Until I did that, it whinged about
the partition type.
