Did you look at jffs2 at all? It's intended for ROMs, so it has a
slightly different set of goals: keeping writes to an absolute minimum
and compression, but that doesn't sound all that different from some of
the things FAT is used for. OpenZaurus uses it for /, so it must have
good support for long filenames & directories. I don't know anything
about its i18n support, but it is a fairly modern fs. Journaling, too.
