parted and xfs, cant grow

I'm using parted 1.8.6 with Fedora 8. My system has a raid array with several partitions and a GPT label. I have a large XFS data partition. I would like to add a disk and grow the data partition, but I have two issues.

Parted doesn't allow me to grow the partition only.
Parted wont grow XFS.

I found the following thread from someone having a very similar issue http://lists.gnu.org/archive/html/bug-parted/2006-04/msg00026.html. Im not sure the patch mentioned in this message would still be valid against parted 1.8.6.

I was wondering if there is any way in parted 1.8.6 to have it resize the xfs partition and leave the filesystem alone, and follow manually with xfs_growfs to glow the file system?

Or tell parted to grow the xfs partition while its online?

Or is it safe to rm a partition, then recreate it with the same start position and the new ending position, And again use xfs_growfs to grow the filesystem?

Any other options safe options other than backup, delete, recreate larger, and restore?

Thank you,
