Just thinking idly here... I'd also be very happy if ext4 did tail packing. That said, I'd also like a flag that turns off all possible optimizations, reducing the amount of code that runs to a bare minimum. My mail spool is an example of a high-use volume where I can tolerate a bug or two: mount it -o3. My sarbanes-oxley archive is big, dumb, and slow, but I need it to be TOTALLY stable: mount it -o0.
I'll second your desire to see a cluster filesystem article too. :)
