    Ah, yes, I agree with you; that's probably what he meant.

    Sure, that's theoretically possible, but it would mean changing every single filesystem, and it would require a file system format change --- or at least a file system format extension.

    It would seem to be way easier to simply fix the partitioning tools to do the right thing, though.
