    personally, whan i want to change the filesystem of my data (not very often
    though, 2 or 3 times in my life, and that was because i was bored), i just do
    a new particion with the filesystem i want, mount it, and cp -a everything I
    want (or tar it, or use whatever backup/script software you want). Thats the
    way of doing things, IMHO. Appart that you can convert all your data to
    another filesystem, it gives you flexibility, which I wouldn't get in the
    kernel.

    And well...how many people are you expecting to change from one filesystem
    to another in the real world?
