However, if the journal gets corrupted, you are in for serious
trouble, because Hans Reiser didn't plan this to happen and didn't
write any fsck code. I have seen this happening, with severe data
loss. AFAIK, there is now a "third party ReiserFS fsck", but I never
actually tried it.

Additionally, ReiserFS has some issues that shouldn't be present in a
modern FS (for example, it is not 64 bit clean, as I am told).
