On our DB server, we have lots of extra CPU cycles to burn and our Drives are constantly maxed out. I would gladly give up 25% - 50% of my CPU if it ment I got that much or more of an I/O imporovement from my filesystem.

I think this is just one of those place where the server side of Linux differs from the Desktop side of linux. Or more clearly (I hope ) is that the Mail server differs from the DB server side of things. RFS4 seems to be addressing high disk usage servers.
