I'm curious why you think this... do you think "xato" (or even xatu!),
"vc" and "tô" are also ugly?  (for everyone else: they are pt_IRC
abbreviations for "chato", "você", and "eu estou" respectively - feel
free to have a rant on this - I'm genuinely curious ;)  Is "ugly"
important?  Is it just that you're obsessed with perfect pt_BR, or do
you think most pt speakers would be personally offended, find it
confusing, unprofessional or whatever?

Basically, the reason we're having this holy war is some users want more
information, but we can't fit the information if some cultures object to

pt_BR:  full!
Minor    Início      Fim     Tipo      Sistema de arquivos  Sinalizador
1          0.984    199.828  primary   linux-swap

en:  plenty of room!
Minor    Start       End     Type      Filesystem  Flags
1          0.984    199.828  primary   linux-swap

So we have a choice: good language vs good information.

What's more important?

I'd like to think information is more important...
