In response to the people who don't like what Brian had to say, I would
like to say that we can't start making assumptions about what hardware
people have and ignore anyone who does not fit those assumptions.
I support Brian on this. If you guys want to have documentation on more
advanced disk tricks, make a separate handbook that specializes in
partitioning and filesystems. The main handbook can include a reference
to it for advanced users.
