So, I think this is in a good enough state to merge into master, so I
have, as of e947593a38a15d4e80a108ae90a8fa9066d20837.

Before I tag the next release though, I'd like us to not have to require
the -8 or -9 flag, as well as have an API option that isn't just
directly poking at FFS and the GUARD partition.
