[openstack-dev] [DIB] Adding GPT support

I'd like to add GPT partitioning supporg to DIB. My current understanding is that the only partitioning in DIB currently is provided by partitioning-sfdisk, which will not support GPT.
My proposed solution is:
1. Create a new element called partitioning-parted that (surprise surprise)
uses parted to create the disk labal and partitions. This would like along
side partitioning-sfdisk but provide a somewhat compatible way
2. Teach partitioning-parted how to parse DIB_PARTITIONING_SFDISK_SCHEMA and
use parted to produce msdos disklabeled partition tables
3. Deprecate partitioning-sfdisk
4. Remove partitioning-sfdisk in line with thew std. deprecation process.
Does this sound like a reasonable plan?
