I finally dug up a couple of more filesystems as well:

There is a --label option to reiserfstune.

There is a -L option to jfs_tune (whatever JFS is :-).

There may be something like a "tune" app for most filesystems.

I found a note about someone who didn't like the xfstune name,
but haven't actually found a description of the actual tuning
app for xfs filesystems. It probably goes on and on...

Hey, I found it! xfs_admin has a -L option.
