I'll let other people comment on the reiser parts of your msg, but ext3
(2.4) has worked fine for many people for a while, (prior to 0.9.5) and
ext3-0.9.6 squashed the last endian bug I've seen.  If you don't want to
reinstall (or _have to_) backup, ext3 makes lots of sense. :)  I've
heard antectodtal evidence that the 2.2 versions of ext3 work on PPC

And, for what it's worth, I updated a box of mine remotely from ext2 to
ext3 w/o a hitch.

Tho if you don't mind the reinstall and can backup, XFS does sound like
A Good Thing.
