Should be achievable as a small shell script to merge the output
of ``gpt show'' and ``gpt show -l'' and then peel out the
partition labels (from ``gpt show -l'') and the partition types
(from ``gpt show''.)  (a small addition to gpt(8) would allow
those outputs to be combined.)

I've got it about half worked out, I'll have a shot at finishing
after dinner..
