Yep, I guess... for now.

In the long term, I'll make probe() return a PedGeometry, and compare
it against what's in the partition table entry, or whatever.

Much better heuristic, I suspect.  Also useful for gpart-like
functionality.  I'm a bit worried about people doing mkfs on
an existing partition though... you get identical PedGeometry's...
so I guess you still need to resort to this open_with_probe thing :/
