ext3 and chattr +S on postfix spools



Postfix <http://www.postfix.org> does a chattr +S on its spool directory
when it is installed on Linux.

This is what is written in the postfix startup script
--
#
# LINUX by default does not synchronously update directories -
# that's dangerous for mail.
#
if [ -f /usr/bin/chattr ]
then
    CHATTR="/usr/bin/chattr +S"
else
	CHATTR=echo
fi

Is this still required on ext3 ? If not, maybe some ext3 hacker can
inform Wietse about it

I recollect once that Andrew Morton had shown that setting data=journal
was quite beneficial for Postfix, I am not sure if that was with chattr
+S or without
