Is repartitioning possible while one of the partitions is mounted?

Hi all,

I just spotted post regarding upcoming Runtime Partitioning Support

After taking a cursory glance at the patch it's not immediately obvious
( uh, to me anyway :D ) whether you can create/delete partitions while
a filesystem (e.g. rootfs) is mounted from another partition on the same
mtd device.

Under what conditions can you create/delete partitions?
