    That's cool.

    The interesting part for some people would be, if I read past postings
    correctly, to change the inode ratio in an existing (perhaps even
    mounted) file system without losing data.

    (I'm not sure how many blocks have to be moved and/or changed for that
    purpose, because I know too little about the on-disk ext2 layout, but
    since block relocating is already in place for shrink support in the
    offline resizer, some of the work appears to be done already.)
