    Nope, I'm a quite happy ext3 user for quite divergent workloads.
    Starting with storing loads of small files in a hugh number of
    directories (mkfs -T news) over hugh numbers of files in few
    directories (mkfs -O dir_index) to only a small number of really hugh
    files (mkfs -T largefile4).

    All that I still need to catch up with is 4TB sized files. But I guess
    this is really an uncommon workload, but ISTR that somebody even works
    on this.
