Yeah. I was thinking similarly. The libraries should contain
enough functionality to get the work done like resizing, shrinking
etc.. Does reiserfs has some libraries or the code is taken from the
reiserfsprogs. It would be difficult to maintain the code, if
libraries are not available and we hack the code, I guess.

I would look into it. I wanted to work on journaling file systems. Is
it ok if I go on with jfs?
