'Fitpart' is ok only for shrinkage, not for enlargement. 'Check' isn't ok
for the same reason. Apparently only 'resize' make sense, using extended
semantics. Pity. Of course alternatives aren't exclusive.

Here is an additional suggestion. Using 

        resize partition

could make 'fitpart'. Basically this is what filesystem resizers do if no
size is given: they adjust the filesystem to the partition size. Parted
could do the same but from the partitioner side: adjusts the partition to
the filesystem size.
