I think I said too much in my post, my real point is that having primary partitions on both sides of an extended partition is OK.

see that is where I was not sure of, having primaries on both sides where the extended is in the middle, as I mentioned, and I wasn't about to give it a go just to see. its no real big deal then if you can still slice off a bit of the extended that one has maxed out in allowed partitions and just take one of the left over primaries to use it for another partition.

GPT I think has even overcome this issue, as I do not use it, because I have no real reason to. So I have no real world experience in that department. Only what I have read about it.

GPT is the abbreviation of GUID Partition Table.
The widespread MBR partitioning scheme, dating from the
early 1980s, imposed limitations which affected the use
of newer hardware.

I don't think it's possible to "max out" allowed logical partitions. Maybe if your OS is windows that uses letters for partitions, but with linux I don't think it's a problem. However, as they say: I could be wrong.
