I fully agree with Ian.  Journaled filesystems are the future now.  They are 
fast and don't require lengthly fsck's at boot.  Most people appreciate that.  
As for ext2 being the 'linux default', that is no longer holding true.  Most 
major distros out there use ext3 or reiserfs as defaults now.  Since ext3 is 
simply an extension to ext2, it would make sense to include the tune2fs -j 
command in the LFS book.  To me it just makes sense.
