We have plans to do everything, but the first version is, essentially, 
a duplicate of BFS, so it won't have that nor any other extra-features.

Also it hasn't been proved that BFS can't be dinamically resized. At 
least it is possible to do that if it would not mean changing the block 
size. It is only that no one coded a tool to do that yet.
