Thanks. I was ~3 months behind on LWN for awhile but am down to 4 weeks
(including the 8th's weekly) behind now, but that does mean I hadn't seen
that article yet. I just read it. =:^)
Looks like they're adding metadata checksumming too, tho not data, and
not until 3.4-ish.
I like, but as I think I mentioned, I hope to finally be switching to
btrfs with 3.3 or 3.4, after the bigger metadata blocks hit (an earlier
LWN said 3.3-ish). I'll be keeping the backup copies (both hot and cold)
on reiserfs for awhile, tho. I'm not insane enough to trust /everything/
to the still-no-fsck-only-recovery-tool btrfs just yet.
