That's really not an option when you only have 16-bits in the disk
label for some of these values, which is the case for Sun disk
labels and some others (f.e. BSD).

Jan, please get past this, it's a real issue and we therefore have to

approaching sane.

No modern filesystem should put it's superblock at position zero.
