Default Change the Size of a Slice

Quick question:

I imagine many of you knew the answer to my question just after looking at the title of my topic, but here it is:

Is it possible to increase the size of a FreeBSD slice? It seems to me the obvious answer should be yes, but I have not really found any way to do it. The closest I got was when I was tinkering around with parts of fdisk I have never used (Not from sysinstall), but it appeared I was editing nothing more than configuration files. Either way, I have not found a definitive answer saying that it IS or is NOT possible, so I would like to know what the case is.

Please note that I do mean slice and not partition, as is described in the FreeBSD handbook:
