    .. on partitions over a certain size, which couldn't be read with
    older ext3 filesystems _anyway_

    Enabling it by default on partitions of a size less than those
    that need extents seems to be somewhat pointless to me?

    Am I missing something fundamental that precludes the use of both
    extent-based and current existing filesystems from the same code
    simultaneously ?
