After additional consideration and some discussion on the Dragonfly IRC,
etc, we have decided to go ahead and put this project on the back
burner for now. For one, it may be a while before we can get around to
adding disklabel64 support. Also, the Dragonfly community seems to want
built in interactive mode and compatibility with the existing disklabel
and fdisk tools. Our tools are designed specifically to be run under
front end scripts and are not interactive or command line compatible
with the existing tools.
Sorry about the delay in following up on this.
