Ah, right.  Yura said he was going to send me a patch!  Anyway, you
could try an earlier version of progsreiserfs...

Agreed.  However, you can use the move command.

It is possible, but it requires journalling for crash recovery (eg:
power failure).  I've decided this is definitely worth doing...
it's a special case of a harder problem, which I'm currently thinking
about how to solve.  (i.e. the convertfs problem.  Yes, I am still
thinking about convertfs!)
