Partition 4 is what i'm using at the moment. The goal is to use all space on the disk (deleting partitions and formatting as ext4 where possible) while moving moving my working partition without borking it. What's the best strategy?

As a related sub-issue, i'd be most interested in hearing from anyone who has experience with ZFS while remaining in the Debian userland. How did you achieve that? How is it for you?
