I've been using 1- for years... not sure whether 0 isn't handled different.

While we're at it I'd like to ask the developers: 
will there be support for BIG (yes, BIG: 6.4TB in my case) disks?
sfdisk's input file is created with the right numbers, but somewhere
there's an overrun (31 or 32 bits I guess) so instead of 6.4TB I'd get 0.4TB
only ...
I suppose the new setup_harddisks would switch to parted in such a case?
