It is not necessary for libparted to depend strongly on libntfs but
the same way as on libreiserfs. When the libreiserfs is present then
parted uses it and provides support to resize the reiser file system.
However parted doesn't depend on libreiserfs. This means that libntfs
can be packaged in udeb that will be unpacked only when the memory is
enough (or rather only when the user requests full support for ntfs).

This is also possible.
