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.

As far as I could tell, nparted is dead.
