Thanks for the link, I'll take a look.

Perhaps the main worry of ReiserFS is that of the debacle with Reiser
himself and whether there is any enthusiasm to continue maintenance and
development by others.

Hopefully at least some of the ideas will be taken up and improved upon
in the other filesystems. For example, support for a million or so files
in a single directory is rather good (and sometimes essential).
