probably not, from my readings of linux-kernel it appears that the
people in charge (Linus Torvalds and Alan Cox)* do not yet feel Reiser
is quite ready to be merged into the main kernel tree.  i think
Alexander Viro the VFS guy also has some issues.   The other problem
is Linus is getting more conservative about allowing new stuff into
2.4 since the more that is added the longer it will take to finish.

most likely Reiser will be first since its a bit further along then
ext3.  But iirc Alan Cox wants to see the Reiser and ext3 journaling
layers merged before either goes in.

read linux kernel archives or past issues of kernel-cousin on
linuxcare.  if your interested in the details.

reading in the past couple months.
