Well, actually I'm more like a (very bad) messenger (and non-native
English speaker that's also a source for all kind of subtle
misunderstandings). In my free time I'm also a maintainer of an open
source, gnu tool (ntfsresize) that is widely used together with
[lib]parted. Due to bugs in parted, people are losing data. More and more
every day. I keep helping them (usually they think it's the fault of the
NTFS resizer) to recover the partition table and I'm also commenting the
issue to the appropriate maintainers.

You're completely right, I'm well aware. But readers don't know the entire
story. The several dozen private emails I've sent to Andrew trying to get
his attention, explaining the problem, the solutions. Without insult (or
did I insult you ever Andrew?) I tried and waited, again tried and waited,
and again and again and so on. It all started about two years ago. No
progress. Things are unfortunately _much_ worse. I've never wanted to
write down the _critics_ and tried to avoid them in all possible ways.
It's not fun for me either, you can believe me.

Andrew is a nice guy with a quite unique mindset. But I do think the work
what parted requires is more what he can devote to it.
