The reiserfs people have written a reiserfs resizer.  I hope to
be able to interface with external resizers from libparted soon.

ATM, only ext2 (resize end only) and fat are supported.  However, there are
external resizers for jfs (grow end only), reiserfs (resize end only) and
xfs (grow end only).  I intend to begin writing an NTFS resizer RSN.

I think GNU/Linux users will move towards LVM in the long term, so
resizers capable of moving the start will become less important, except
for interfacing with the Windows world.  (And even that is moving towards
LDM, an LVM-look-alike).

I would like libparted to be able to deal with LVM/raid properly.

I plan to make the NTFS resizer capable of moving the start (as well
as the end).
