Partitive Genetive

I've got a couple questions about the partitive genitive, one specific, the other rather broad. First, is the partitive genitive a common feature of language, or is it mostly an Indo-European thing? Second, does Arabic use the partitive genitive? It seems like it might be a little clumsy in idafa.
Thanks for indulging my silly curiosity :p
