If you've first created a slice on the disk, and then
partitions inside the slice, it's standard mode, e. g.

	ad0   a    b       d       e       f       g
	{  [  (/)  (swap)  (/tmp)  (/var)  (/usr)  (/home)  ]  }
	   s1

If you've omitted the slice, and created the partitions
on the disk device itself, it's dangerosly dedicated mode, e. g.

	ad0
	{  (/)  (swap)  (/tmp)  (/var)  (/usr)  (/home)  }
	   a    b       d       e       f       g

You can tell by the existence of ad0s1[adefg] vs. ad0[adefg]
in /dev, or by trying to print the disks's slice table.
