There are no plans.  Possible solutions include:
 * convertfs.  See members.optusnet.com.au/clausen/ideas/convertfs.txt
 * add direct support to either parted's resizer (hard) or e2fsprogs'
   resizer (also hard).
 * do some copying tricks to support an (expensive) move-the-start
operation.  This is fairly hard to do efficiently and safely.
(Safe == recoverable corruption on power failure)
