Me, I eviscerate the "LABEL" thing wherever I find it. Indirect
reference seemed like a good idea when it was tried, but creates too
much chaos over time to be worth it, e.g., when you try to bring over
and repurpose a disk that used to be /usr on a different system, and
acquired the corresponding label, there.
