I've said it before and I'll say it again: a less mature, more bug-prone yet faster version of reiserfs3 is not interesting, nor is it worth the hassle of upgrading my disk storage.
A radically feature-enhanced, faster yet less mature reiser4, OTOH, may be worth the trouble depending on how immature it is and how valuable the new feature set is.
It's great that it's getting closer to being merged, I'd like to see the metadata pseudofile functionality as a compile-time option. Otherwise it need not be called reiser4; "reiser3.7" would be more accurate.
