      Reiser4 is not part of the default kernel, so lets
      not go bashing it yet. Until its part of the default
      kernel, don't expect it to magically be 'bug-free'.
      If you're following the reiser mailing list, you'll
      see that things are getting sorted and progress is
      being made in adhering to the standards.

      Reiser3 I've been using for many years, and use it to
      store ~400 000 users mailboxes. (~1TB of mail)
