I've really been pondering the irony of your desires WRT ext4 this entire
thread.  The irony is:

1.  You're willing to possibly sacrifice your data to an unproven FS
2.  Yet, you're totally paranoid against an installation CD that isn't
"official" which will allow you to achieve [1].

News flash:  ext4 isn't "Official Debian" yet either.

Frankly I'm surprised people have continued to assist you, given that you
resist and fight their recommendations at every turn.

Let's see.  Applicable American phrases that come to mind:

1.  You can't have it both ways
2.  You can't have your cake and eat it too
3.  ...

You're not going to get any assurances.  No "official-ness".  You are
deliberately trying to do something outside of the official Debian Stable
distribution.  Why can you not get this through your thick skull?!?!  At least
a half dozen people have told you the same thing.

Now shut up and do what has been recommended, or use use ext3, or better yet,
XFS which is superior to all other Linux filesystems.

My apologies for being rude, but someone needed to slap you upside the head
and bring you to reality.
