Andrew, what do you think, for future versions of libparted, to modify the
detection behavior.

Instead of running the probes, and stoping once you found, we would run all
probes, put the results in a list, and then if there is a single element in
the list, go for it, if not, we ask the user in an exception about this fact,
with eventually a choice to clobber the badly detected info.

We maybe need to add a clobber-light in this case, since the full clobber may
well break the real file-system or partition table on the disk.

Also, it would be nice to have the same kind of double checking for
filesystems which are one partitions marked as being of some other type.
