parted even goes as far as to yell at you if you have the wrong alignment, and offers to fix it for you.
However, you may have to use % based partitions for parted to be able to fix the auto-alignment, otherwise it complains.
mkpart primary ext3 0% +200M
mkpart primary ext4 200M 100%
Or however you want to work things.
