Thanks.

FWIW:

(1) Tail-packing.

(2) Good experience since data=ordered, even thru bad ram induced kernel 
lockups, plus a drive overheat recovery (dd-rescue) after an AC failure.

(3) The kernel folks don't screw with it as much as they do ext*.  
Reference the infamous ext3 data=writeback period during which reiserfs 
stayed safely data=ordered.  I know people on ext3 that were wondering 
why they were losing data during that period, until I explained the 
situation and they switched to explicit data=ordered.

btrfs ftw, tho, when I think it's ready.  Perhaps after the larger 
metadata blocks that LWN says is penciled in for 3.3, which should be 
early January merge-window and mid-March release, assuming 10-week cycles 
and given current 3.2-rc4.  But I'll omit listing my reasons as I did for 
reiserfs, since I guess anyone interested has already read up on btrfs.
