[CentOS] mount -o loop question.

I know I can create a file and mount it like this:
dd if=/dev/zero of=/tmp/somefile bs=1024 count=100000
mount /tmp/somefile /mnt -o loop
but that has a problem it cannot grow.
Is there a way to do the same (above) but have it not restricted to a size?
Or can I append blocks to the end of the file without distroying it?
Sendmail administration is not black magic. There are legitimate technical reasons why it requires the sacrificing of a live chicken.
