I think its the tried-and-true method of tar by way of spare space on
some device.

This is a great reason to be using LVM with separate LVs.  Need to
convert?  Create a new LV, make the new filesystem, tar the data over to
it.  When everything is working, delete the old LV.  If you need extra
space during the transition, borrow a drive and add it to the VG.
