I didn't know neither libhfs nor libhfs+ when i started this code, so I will 
continue to both integrate it into and write HFS+ support for GNU Parted, 
because my code use different schemes than theses two libraries, and switching 
to the (maybe better for long run support) separated library and wrapper 
approach would take more time than I have.
Anyway implementation in libhfs(+) could be quite fast for someone who has some 
previous knowledge of these libraries : all you have to do is to relocate every 
extents to send free space at the end of the volume and change block number in 
Master Directory Block / Volume Header.
