Hmm, and does it have a proper UI in ncurses or something? to replace cfdisk in aif?
It will when cparted is proper. Whether cparted will be ported to use libparted directly, rather than using Python bindings, is yet to be seen. I certainly prefer writing/maintaining Python code over C though, and I don't see any benefit to translating it into C other than avoiding Python as a dependency.
Instead of duplicating efforts, you can try hacking on http://www.gnu.org/software/fdisk/ which uses libparted as backend (fdisk and cfdisk present but no sfdisk though). That project is inactive but not discontinued.
I know about the newt-based nparted but I'm told it's badly maintained.
As far as I could tell, nparted is dead.
