What's the intent behind this feature? ext4 on usb flash drives?

Yes, and why not? It makes even more sense with portable USB hard drives. Just the other day saw a 1000Gb one advertised for 79 euros. ext3 or ext4 is definitely better for it than VFAT.

This is *SO* needed. I've been bitten by this oh-so-many times.

Why is VFAT the only usable file system for flash drives that I carry aronud to other Linux-systems? It's quite stupid if I might say so. :-)

Yes, yes, yes to this feature. It's really needed.
