I just implemented this.  Thanks.

(parted) help resize
  resize MINOR START END        resize filesystem on partition MINOR

        MINOR is the partition number used by Linux.  On msdos disk labels, the
        primary partitions number from 1-4, and logical partitions are 5
        START and END are in megabytes.  Negative values count from the end of
        the disk.

Is that what you meant?  Did you have any other ideas?
