At least the way i manage parted "exceptions" is a bit tricky, i don't know if 
it's a better way but you can take a look if have any problems.

Yes you are right i don't like it either, qt is too big. I want to make net 
partitioning and using qt for a simple server is just crazy IMHO.
But really the code almost don't need QT, just silly things like using qstring 
instead of the much more error prone char*. 
What really needs qt is the libbslxml that will be changed to use libxml2 
instead of QT anyway. The clases that are really close to libparted don't use 
xml also.

i'm thinking that if your wrapper is good , my code will be changed to use 
yours, instead of using libparted directly,  if you can't beat them join them
