There is a complete rewrite of much of the fs support, especially block
devices in the 2.5.x kernel.  Feature freeze is tomorrow.  Reiser posted
today that he will submit patch "on Hallowee", LVM is in, Linus does not
seem to like EVMS but it may end up in 2.6 anyway because it is IBM's
baby (Linus said this evening that EVMS will not make feature freeze).

My point is this, there are plenty of hints for journal fs.  We can wait
a bit longer and see what 2.6 is going to look like.  Then if we like,
we can upgrade the default fs at that time.

I think, therefore, ken_i_m
