I also would like to use this approach for changing properties (and so
partition file-system type) of existing partitions (same problem : need
to know what flags are available), but I must then duplicate a partition
with all its properties.
Is it possible without using something like memcpy() ?
- because I'm not sure this is a good Idea -
Or maybe I should save original file-system type elsewhere.
- and so only file-system type changes wil be applied directly, and no
ohter changes, this is a bit incosistent -.

I'm porting Gtk-Parted to parted-1.3.x (now 1.4.x), and it's takes me
a lot of work - hollydays are also ended :'( -,
but I think now most is done :)
