Most applications don't even append, they just write a new file in one go (and
some then rename it, unlinking the old one). I think that ext3 data=ordered
is a good file system for these applications.
Of course, for applications that overwrite stuff in place (e.g.,
usually data bases) it's not a good file system, and these applications need fsync() with it.
