Now that I think. On SSD "contiguous space" has no meaning. We could
virtually join space in partition 3 to partition 10 and reorder to be
contiguous without moving any data. Create new bigger partition 3 any
time.

Has anybody designed for this?


Not sure what you mean with "reordering" but yes, on SSD logically
concatenating multiple non-contiguous partitions should have no negative
impact like on rotating disks.

I meant that if you have a layout of partitions like this:

1
2
3
4
5

on an SSD disk and you want to join 1 and 5, they could be joined by the firmware, reordering the LBAs.

Nah, brain fart. Forget it. :-)
