No, my ramblings are more about full journaling modes rather than
meta-journaling. I have heard of a few people that found quirks with it.
I have also heard of cases of mixing support of various filesystems at
the same time as causing other problems, e.g., mixing XFS and ext3 and
ReiserFS support, they don't seem to have all their interactions ironed
out yet. In my case, I'd have to have both XFS and ext3 at the same
time. How good is the ext3 full journaling at this point?
