resize_reiserfs shrinks or grows reiserfs3 filesystems.


[evidence type=anecdotal] I have used it to grow and shrink my reiserfs 
filesystems on many occasions for several years with no problems 
whatsoever. [/evidence] I typically use ext3 on the / and /boot 
partitions and LVM with Reiser on all large storage areas, like /home 
and /files. This is specifically because it is easy to change the sizes 
of the filesystems and handle the disks - move them around and so on.
