Ext3 should do as well. The same team that maintains ext2 also
maintains ext3. Ext3 is like ext2, but with journaling and directory
indexing. Bug fixes from ext3 get backported to ext2.

Very likely there will be an ext4 filesystem that starts with the same
functionality as ext3, but will get extents and 64 bit block
addressing (and problably other neat features on the go).
