I'm completely unfamilair with the parted code, but it isn't possible to just 
export some of the internal variables (like the value of the disk size shown 
with "print") into "Macros" that can be used within a parted script.

By automaticly I meant, using a macro provided by parted, like $SIZE_OF_DISK.

I'm using it on the image CD. Only limited space, parted / bash fit, but a 
python interpreter probably won't fit.
