I didn't see tools like mkcdrec, mondo or proprietary tools like plate spin
I'm a hardcore grub command line guy so I'm not likely to use one of them
except if I have lots of vms to create.
The more user friendly tools may be helpful for people not comfortable with
drive partitioning math.

Thanks for all this. Worthy of a blog post for sure, so all can know.
