Those capabilities will reappear, but not in libparted proper.
They will be provided by a separate library that will be
useful only in conjunction with libparted.

I expect to use most of what was in libparted/fs/hfs/ and
libparted/fs/fat/, along with a few functions from libparted/filesys.c.

Does this mean that parted will be able to resize ext4 as well, by invoking resize2fs? In other words, parted can manipulate filesystems, we just don't want the crufty fs code in libparted?
