You would use "kpartx -a test.img" which creates devices like
/dev/mapper/loop0p1 for each partition. You can work with it like you
would do with losetup and afterwards remove it with "kpartx -d test.img".

But actually Laurent's solution doesn't look too bad either. Didn't know
about it until now.
