loopback blockdevice driver partition support

hello.. i was wondering if someone may have done some work to make the
loopback driver support partitions..

i found that a guy had written a nice script that used sfdisk and
dmsetup to use device mapper on a loopback image of an entire harddrive
(using DOS partition table ofcourse) to create device mapper

though this doesent quite meet my requirements, as i need to read an
image of an amiga disk..

therefore it would seem like a good idea to make the loopback driver
work with linux's partition table support, since it already supports

if anyone has done some work in this, please mail me, and possibly i can
continue it if wanted. just want to know if anyone already has done
something like it before i try at it myself..
