Considering that we're talking about two different levels (a `device' and 
the filesystem on top of it), Mouse's ffs tool isn't going to even 
consider touching the ccd.

As I see it, at the moment, the only way to re-interleave a ccd is to 
backup your data, reconfigure the ccd, newfs, and restore.  From my 
perspective, implementing dynamic resizing of the ccd device and dynamic 
re-interleaving is non-trivial.
