I view parted, gparted, fdisk, sfdisk, and all of those as straight
razors: One wrong move and I'm seriously wounded (or my partitions
are). I only use those to create new partitions, never to label
something. I'd rather go without a label than risk running those
partition making programs to create the label. But thanks to e2label and
dosfslabel, I don't have to. The best of both worlds!
