If you'd even consider using FAT, then UFS will do.
UFS is just about identical to ext2 in terms of
feature set and on-disk structure. Ext2 was designed
as a UFS clone with the VAX-era cruft removed.

The only question of interest: has anybody set up the
Linux UFS driver to handle MacOS X yet? The driver
needs to know the byte order and needs to know if some
features (32-bit UID, file type codes, etc.) may
legitimately be used.

Some old Mac apps might have a little trouble, but
hopefully that won't be too serious for $HOME usage.
For example, you get case sensitivity.
