Perhaps that too is a bug?

But then ...

If that is the case and that is hard wired into GParted then I think there is
bug in the architecture of the modularity of GParted. This my be sufficient
it it is not necessary.

No, it is a missing feature :-)

The program may be modular and ask you to install other modules at run
time if you request do something on a filesystem that it doesn't support
with the installed software (maybe recommending them at install time),
or may depend on them all at install time.

It is a design choice, not a bug.

Maybe you can install it with broken deps and try. See what happens when
there is a non supported partition type. Does it handle the situation
nicely? Then dependencies can be changed to recommends.

Me, I like it supporting all possible types from the first minute.
