You can explicitly mount it as -t ext4dev, and the next file created

Oh, and getting some airtime on that configuration *would* be good, too.

What's the likelyhood of it being yanked in F9 final?  I'd hate to
switch over and then have F9 final say "you're stupid wtf is this
filesystem?"

You could just test with filesystems other than /home, and plan on being able to reinstall the others and keep home. (in the event something goes wrong, or just to clean up the system to F9 final when its released, either way)
