A look at the PyPy 2.0 release
why is that an oops? just because it's fast (in the workload he appereantly used it in) doesn't mean it's stable (like in doesn't throw your files away ;)

I never used Reiser4 and I don't even dare to try to really understand the reasons why it isn't included in the kernel, but I don't think anyone can say "stable" is a requirement for a kernel patch (there is that big EXPERIMENTAL tag for this things).
Besides, I don't think the ammount of Reiser4 users will agree with you on that count.
On the other hand, I do use Reiser3. And the main reason is just because of the fast fsck time on bootup (and it never did eat my drive. real hardware problems of cheap drives have been taking care of that part).
