I've never had a problem with file-system fragmentation. As long as you
leave some space free on the filesystem (this is part of the reason for
5% reserved for root), it will figure out how not to fragment your drive.
Running an ext2 fs about 90% full for about a year led to 8-9%
fragmentation. While this isn't _great_, it doesn't get much worse
I've heard rumors of an ext2 file system defrag program -- but I don't
think I'd trust my data to it.
