And a lot, lot less likely to succeed. Be prepared to have every single
file over 4K on the whole filesystem lost if there's a single inconsistency
ext3, on the other hand, is pretty damn resilient, keeping any damage quite
localised. From limited anectodal evidence, I would place JFS and XFS
somewhere in the middle.
