If it's "just" this, then a delay is of course necessary. Only when
stability is more or less to be expected (don't dare to say
"guaranteed" ;-), an inclusion is appropriate.

Why can there be a discussion about this? If they don't support it,
somebody else should. He should fix it or shut up. Progress should be
done, in order have more features. Although I personally am happy with
reiser3, it just works and is stable. But it's becoming slow after some
time working with it, just like NTFS. Hopefully reiser4 with it's builtin
defragmentation can help there.
