I think you can also list specific partitions there, but in this case
the partition table is re-created, with the preserved partitions in the
same place as before. From e-mails of Michael Tautschnig I understood
that because the same code must handle creation, deletion, resize, and
possibly other situtations, it would normally always re-create the
partition table more or less from scratch. The "all" with semantics of
"do not touch anything" was added as an exception.
