optimized for, at least by default.

Has someone documented (recently, and correctly) what filesystems (XFS, ext3, ext4, reiser, JFS, VFAT etc.) are best for what tasks (mailboxes, database, general computing, video streaming etc.) ?

I messed around with Bonnie etc. a couple of years ago, deciding that XFS was better than ext3 for 4Mb mailbox fragments. Later I was quite impressed by an early ext4 on FC9, until it bombed. But I don't really have the skills to assess properly.
