That's a very good question. Right now you can decide whether you want
to use the disklabel approach or wedges. I don't think we need both.
I think having the full disk (raw) device ((r)sd0d) and compat symlinks
to the wedges is good enough and would help eliminate quite a bit glue
in the existing drivers.
