Does this imply that on Linux (where, as I understand it, no special
fsck is required) you could use the standard ext2 dump to back up
/vice partitions?

While I am asking, what *is* the layout of a /vice partition, anyway?
(For example, how are AFS-specific things like ACLs represented?)  A
pointer to a description would be fine...
