Installers should be advised with the merrits of both and warnings about
problems with / etc.

It's possibly too early to decide to what extent ReiserFS should be
reccomended in the install, this issue should be considered close to the
time, however i think it is important that ReiserFS support be in the
install disks. Along with further kernel bloat it also requires *more*
packages for the disks.

Talking about server development do you think it would be beneficial to
include RAID/LVM support, RAID suppport has been in the kernel for a
relatively long time, but LVM is newer. Perhaps these could be slated for
sid rather than woody, it would certainly help boost Deban in the enterprise
