I think, that it is better to link against ntfslib from ntfstool in odrer to provide ntfs functionality. But this is the job, which must be done someday by somebody...

the SOMEBODY is always the problem... i find strange that commercial linux
distributions are not paying somebody to do that.

I guess, that ntfs in parted is intersting by itself, but, it makes small sence because of the following reasons:

(1) Ntfs is needed only if you are using ntfs on one of yours partitions, that is, you have windows on it. (2) I'm sceptical about that, anybody will use ntfstools (resize, check, etc) under linux if windows present on the box.

Distromakers are not intersted in supporting concurrent product (RedHat is promoting and developing ext3).
If I'm wrong, tell me :)
