Power outages still occur.

I was under the impression ext3 was the Good Thing™ and ext4 is the
future, but with all the counter-claims i got curious. If uptime is
important you'll want ext3 over ext2 (not this case i guess), if data
loss is important (if?) i think the journal helps... And lately disk
capacity is less and less a problem, so why not ext3? Btw, how does
one know how much space is the journal using?
