I still use Reiser and I've had one issue that makes me want to
switch. That was reading Jeff Mahoney's porting page a month or so ago
in which he had discovered that he introduced a bug in his endianess
patch that made Reiser scatter what should have been contiguous blocks
randomly across the disk.
Reiser on PPC/big-endian is just not very heavily tested.
