Comment 10 for bug 61728

There is at lease one more important usecase for disks-admin: When using the Desktop-CD as a rescue system, disks have manually to be mounted if you want to work with them from the live system.

Besides that, disks-admin had an informational value: It gave on overview about a disks partitions, their size and free space.

I don't know about its technical background, but could pysdm serve as a basis for a successor? It is currently in universe, but Ubuntu certainly needs something in main that gets installed by default.
