[vox-tech] [clausen@gnu.org: Re: quick question about ext2/3 resizing]

the author of parted is working on lifting the "start block" restriction
on ext2/ext3 resizing in parted.

he's also working on "convertfs" -- converting a partition from one
filesystem to another filesystem non-destructively.

there is COOL stuff afoot.

(It's more a "proof-of-concept").
