Maybe the commercial/proprietary tool "Partition Magic"[1] is able to do 
that, since they support ext2(3) and can merge fat & CO for years already. 
But I don't have recent versions of Partition Magic so I don't really 
know - ask them before purchasing that tool. But backing up before doing 
that is a good idea in any case ;-)
