On a slight tangent, I was at an expo last week and a SuSE guy was also
there.  A brief discussion popped up about journaling filesystems and we
determined that XFS was *not* going to be in SuSE 7.3 while Reiser, ext3
and JFS were.  His explanation was that XFS was not stable enough but
had no more technical information.

Can any SuSE guys around here comment more on that?

(My suspicions are really less that it's unstable and more that it
touches pretty deeply into the rest of the VFS layer that made them
unhappy and not want to use it for whatever reason.  Some of the same
stuff I've seen Alan Cox mention here.)
