I'm surprised by one thing ext 4 snapshots doesn't seem to do: I would have
thought the "killer feature" for doing snapshots in the fs rather than in
the block layer would be the ability to snapshot - and more importantly
roll back - only parts of the directory hierarchy.

(I've only read the URLs Amir sent, so apologies if I've missed this)
