More specifically now that Red Hat Inc still does all the work
on Red Hat Linux we simply don't want to commit ourselves to
doing so much work that we would no longer have time left to
get the quality right.

Of course, once the distribution has moved to an open source
development model it will be possible to support reiserfs, as
long as people volunteer to do that work...
