May be I should start to stick posters with photos of modules
entitled "I want to believe" everywhere in my flat. Or perhaps I'm
going to buy electronic glasses that display modules advertizing in
the street. I'm not sure yet but I'll find a way.

I thought everyone learned the lesson behind SystemTap's failure
(and to a certain degree this was behind Oprofile's failure as
well): when it comes to tooling/instrumentation we dont want to
concentrate on the fancy complex setups and abstract requirements
drawn up by CIOs, as development isnt being done there. Concentrate
on our developers today, and provide no-compromises usability to
those who contribute stuff.
If we dont help make the simplest (and most common) use-case convenient then
we are failing on a fundamental level.

Jan suggests that we not surprise users by having delalloc enabled
when ext3 is mounted with the ext4 driver. However there are other
behavior differences as well, mballoc behavior comes to mind at
least. What about the 32000 subdir limit? If we go back to ext3
is it ok with the subsecond timestamps and creation time etc?
Maybe so... have we tested any of this?
At what point do we include the phase of the moon as worth considering when
describing ext4.ko behavior?
