11 I was just going to mention reiserfs, which I use exclusively (in
12 data=ordered mode). I /believe/ one of the other journalled fs, either
13 jfs or <forgot>, does something similar, using large blocks but packing
14 files into them irrespective of size. I read that somewhere and noted it
15 with interest, but reiserfs has been sufficient for me, particularly after
16 it got data=ordered (and now data=journal, tho ordered is sufficient for
17 me) support.
