I've seen that, but I'm not sure it works reliably.  It seems more like a
cosmetic hiding, but I suspect any program might still easily access the
partitions (i.e. still not by directly reading the bytes on the block device).

Besides, it is rather annoying 1) having to do it for each partition by hand,
2) eating up drive letters for nothing and 3) to use with drive racks or other
removeable drives.

Save the whales. Feed the hungry. Free the mallocs.
