The problem is "is 10 gigs enough?"  And on multilib platforms, it only
barely is today.  Which means that as someone upgrades and wants to add
more software, it's not going to be anymore.

If we had online shrinking of ext3 filesystems, it'd be a little easier
as the theoretical future tool for disk handling could do a resize when
you need it.  But right now, it just leads to user pain.
