I'd hope F8.  I attended an ext4 talk at the RH Summit last week and based on 
information gathered there I wouldn't expect ext4 to be remotely safe to use 
for a while.  It should be there for you to create test file systems and play 
around with it, but I don't think it would be prudent to allow anaconda to 
throw it into the mix.
