SubjectRe: reiserfs4

> Why do people ever want a "converter"?

That's been discussed before.
Because people don't have the resources (hard disk space, tape drives,
money) to backup their data, and might still be interested in testing a
new filesystem. They might be willing to take a risk with the new fs
and converter. Amazing as it may sound, people do that. I am such a
tester, and I'd find a converter to be a useful tool. But since the
previous discussion on the subject concluded it'd be really hard to
impossible to write one, I guess I'll have to settle for new hard drive(s).

"It's going to be a major pain if I'll have to back things up and
reinitialize partitions..."
<-- This is why
