This means we really need to be able to specify the selector on the command 
line as part of mtdparts as well.

Anybody got any recommendations on the syntax? The current syntax isn't 
obviously extensible without introducing another delimiter.

How about...

<partdef> := <size>[@offset][<name>][<option-list>]
<option-list> := <option>['+' <option-list>]
<option> := [ro | oobnone | oobjffs2 | oobyaffs]
