[RFC] Degrading reiserfs to optional filesystem?

What do people think of degrading reiserfs support to optional, i.e. only 
usable by specifically selecting partman-reiserfs in anna?

The rationale would be that its popularity has decreased (AFAIK), upstream 
development is not very active and that more (and better?) alternatives 
are available now than there used to be when reiserfs was quite popular.

IMO its relevance for new installs for Squeeze could be minor.

OTOH, it's popcon stats are not yet decreasing [1], but "recent usage" is 
very low and popcon will lag anyway.
