Reiser has this "tail packing" option, as well as some other optimizations
that benefit sites with lots of small files (best example: Usenet feeds).
However, this can come at a price for really LARGE files (as a DB would need).

Since noone has mentioned XFS, let me throw in my recommendation for XFS.
XFS (like, probably, IBM's JFS) is a top-notch filesystem. 
Try it out in your scenario, you might like it.
