Opensolaris on Extended Partition

Did anybody happen to see this recent flag day message on OpenSolaris?

http://www.opensolaris.org/os/community/on/flag-days/pages/2009070201/

Solaris now understands Logical Drives in Extended Partitions.  That means, Solaris can now be installed in extended partitions and it can also mount them.

Most of the systems comes pre-installed with Windows leaving only extended partitions for multiboot.  Linux supported extended partition for a long time.  This feature should have been in Solaris by the time the OpenSolaris distro was released.  Well, better late than never..
