Speaking of spending the day fscking your disks - has anyone considered
developing jfs or any journaling fs for Linux (to avoid just this
massive fscking issue)? I haven't read up on what reiserfs promises
or is supposed to deliver, but I haven't heard much hoo-hah on the
linux-kernel list with regards to any journaling fs support.

Yes, it's being worked on for the ext2 filesystem, but it's going to be
a 2.3 feature; it won't make it into Linux 2.2. (We may be releasing
standalone modules which you can load into a Linux 2.2 kernel that will
provide journaling capability, though.)
