VirtualBox and Resizing an LVM root partition

New projects to work on!  That means configuring my virtual machines to fit more stuff.  I never seem to think ahead about how much space I need.  I work on a laptop with an SSD, so storage is a premium...

Sure, I could just create a new VM, but all those hours of customizing the environment, tweaking firewall and security settings, installing and building custom packages.  No way I want to do that again from scratch.

It shouldn't be too hard to extend my linux partition to make more room, right ? :eek a lot more involved than I thought.
