People scream they want XFS. But when you ask them "WHY" most of them
fall silent or come up with arguments that no longer hold in 2.6.
I asked that WHY a lot when I did that feature survey. I got no
significant answers that aren't met by ext3 in 2.6.

this is actually only half the case.... the engineers do listen. And
quite a few of the feature requests are in. But people need to
understand (and thankfully they did in that survey) that they should ask
for the feature not the implementation.
