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.
