In fact, if you have ext3 and a crash, in the worst case, journal will be
out of sync (In the case of writes were not like the filesystems thought due
to LVM)
Then you'll have a 15 minutes fsck (like if it was ext2).
In the best case, journal is OK, and you have a 3 seconds fsck which is
fine.

Agree?
