Okay.  I got an old, in need of a reinstall, PPC box up and going with
2.4.8-pre8+ext3-0.9.5+fsync_dev->fsync_no_super.  I told it
rootflags=data=journal, which seems to have taken.  Then I did an
rpm -e of 50-60+ pkgs that I had ment to remove before,  Once that had
started to remove stuff, I cut the power, and started up again.  Each
time all I had to do was a rpm --rebuilddb, since the db hadn't had
a chance to fully update itself.  But aside from that it seems to
have done well.  (I've killed the power at least 6 times now.  I
figured this would be an OK test since I had something similar
happen on reiserfs on my x86 box which totally toasted the dpkg

If theres any more specific tests you'd like me to run, please let
me know.
