Sure, when we have kernel-image which support both, you can use sth.
like flavor=reiserfs-ext3-xfs to active them. Unfortunately, the current
ext3 patch for kernel 2.2.x clashes with ReiserFS, so no support unless
it is fixed. But since 2.2.x series will end, sooner or later, it's
better to take 2.4.x kernels where the support is up-to-date. (*) OTOH,
Woody+1 won't have current dbootstrap, so then everything would change

My personal BFs use 2.4.x. The ReiserFS-question in the user interaction
needs to be modified a bit, only cosmetical changes.

and Hubris"                              (from the man-page for perl).
