Unless the new install has the same LABEL as one of the old ones. I know

the beauty of UUID is that you won't get a dup with multiple installs,
you won't copy a filesystems only or off of a USB drive and plug the
drive with the old duplicate name back in a year later.
UUID is ugly, but useful.
Maybe there needs to be a simple way to show the UUID/Label/dev list for
each device. I have not looked at it in detail. Maybe a flag for the
various programs that use the UUID devices like df.
