See the code/patches at the "Cockpit Partitioner" project, which has a
bunch of changes I made to parted to allow it to be easily scripted and
also support setting numeric partition types.  The project is dead, but
the code lives on (unmaintained).


Yes, Andrew hates numeric partition types, but they are a requirement
for certain cases (BIOS, Windows, etc).
