I'm afraid I don't have time to help actively (other than testing it).  However,
if you need a platform for beta-testing, Debian GNU/kFreeBSD is a good place:
Because the "classical" util-linux fdisk is not available, any replacement is
welcome, even if it's not a mature, well-tested one.

I suppose you could put it in trunk, but disable it by default?  If one could
build it using --enable-fdisk-ui or something, then the Debian package could be
selective and activate it for this platform.

What do you think about that?
