Handling resize nicely is going to require a bit of rethinking and
reworking of the entire partitioning interface (not to mention the
backend code).  Given resource constraints, there's just not really a
good way to get to something that's feature complete without losing big
pieces in time for the feature freeze at test2.  

It's definitely something on the bigger picture roadmap for anaconda,
but this just isn't going to be the release where it's reasonable for it
to happen.
