Yes, it is so bad that it is surprising that there is not a text-mode
program that performs the functions of gparted - or is there one?
That is, something that gives you a fill-in-the-form setup with
reasonable defaults, then runs parted (and maybe mklabel, mkfs, etc.)
for you.   Do we really need to run X for that?
