	Have you looked at all into how well it works on RAID partitions?
Ideally I'd love to be able to stick a pair of disks into a system,
the SCSI bus to pick them up, add them onto the end of my RAID 0+1
mirrored) raid, and then increase the ext2 partition on the RAID.  All
without having to drop the system.  I'm fairly sure it can't be done
the current set of tools and whatnot, but that's one thing I'd love to
	Don't get me wrong, ext2 resizing is very nice, just would be nice
to be able to resize RAID things to go along with it...
