Yesterday, I read this:
http://kerneltrap.org/node/view/3466?PHPSESSID=4d3cbf0a2a03eacb8ff88b6e57782483

Which IMHO seems to imply that the last point preventing replacement of 
ext2 by ext3 is performance with low latency work. However, it does not 
seem to be a big deal and moreover it is currently worked out.

 From this, I would say go for ext3.

Thank you for raising this point, have a nice WE.
