Yes, it would have to be considered for Sarge, not Woody.

Which part of it is irritating?

Do you btw, know which file systems in the 2.6 kernel now supports
online resizing (ie resize/extend without umount)?  I know it is
supported by reiserfs, and suspect it is supported by xfs, but is it
supported by ext3 or anyof the others?

Online resize would make filesystem resizing a lot more convenient.  I
don't find 'e2fsadm -L+1g /dev/vg_data/lv_home0 very hard, but it
would be a lot easier if we didn't have to umount it first.
