This is really unhelpful, it's going to leave frontends with no way to readd 
support for the lost functionality for another release.

(FYI, I filed an RFE against upstream kde-partitionmanager to get support 
for this in: https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=295339 . I might try to 
come up with a patch if upstream doesn't react soon.)

IMHO, we should actually either also upgrade F16 to parted 3.1 or backport 
the new libparted-fs-resize library.
