no, sorry.

debian linux kernel guys vetoed reiser4 in debian kernel long time
ago. i don't even remember when it was, but Martin Michlmayr was already
mentioning this on January 2005 [0]. probably this is the right time
to ask them for an update on this story.  to what is my current view of
the reiser4 merge in the vanilla, i don't think it is around the corner.

i've never been eager to start working on the debian-installer support
for reiser4. last time i tried, again some time ago, i found it pretty
scary. so, if anybody is willing to take over that part...
