Then  a  bad drive should not matter or you have done something wrong.
RAID5  has  redundancy for one drive so you should not loose any data.
But  agreed.  Bad  blocks  management  is  a  needed  feature  of  any
filesystem. Just as defragment support utils.

From what I understood is Reiser4 going to improve on all areas.

Performance wise no FS should be very slow on big files? Or what did I
miss?
