Not only fsck times but I/O issues here forced me to switch to
reiserfs.  Smaller files in mail spools really benefit from 
using reiserfs, particularly exim running on a SCSI HDD.

Your fear of the unknown as far as crash/change of reiserfs
(Reiser also incompatibly changed the format once) will not 
hold much weight when real live issues like performance hits
due to file I/O and power glitches loom large !

As the Debian developers' say 'unstable' is what it means.  User
Beware.  unstable == as good as stable.
