Indeed. Backup / restore partition table should probably
be a separate function in the first place... But for now,
asking the user what to do in /AMBR might be a good idea.

There could also be an option /AMBRWITHTABLE which does
not ask and which does include those 4 partition table
entries which are part of the MBR file from the user...
Note that such functions let the user shoot his own foot.

I hope you can reach the Fdisk maintainer to discuss this.
