Implement the ext3 resizing code in libparted, patches are welcome :)

There are two solutions for this, either you write the resizing code for ext3,
or you scrap the existing code, and write new code interfacing with libext2,
or whatever the name of it is, which already has the resizing coce.

Alternatively, you can transform your ext3 code to ext2, resize, and reenable
the journal, altough i didn't find out how to do such, or you can use
resize2fs to resize your filesystem, and then remove and recreate your
partition for the new filesystem size, but YMMV.
