This time, I would do it with the correct size, to cover all a+b+h (and now also the future g) space, that is - to include also the part that has been missing from c since the very beninning. What do you think about?

Be sure to be working in sectors. And make a note of the new offset and size since you will have to put the same in the disklabel.

I would never use these. If you want to edit disklabels you should use the appropriate tool from the BSD in question.
For certain, neither would I either... in normal circumstances. But now, I've only wanted to see...
