So what's the problem to install unstable distribution with /boot ext3 and / ext4
About ReiserFS, well he (Hans Reiser) is in prison because of killing his wife, not because this FS is bad. And I have been with RaiserFS for an year, and can tell you that is blazing fast.
The only problem I had was on a server of mine, in which I accidentally deleted a directory because of a faulty script, and I wanted to recover the data. What I did was release the partition from the mirror RAID and make a "filesystem reconstruction" or something like that that reindexes all the files in the system. After that I copied the directory to another HDD, which is not in the RAID, and attached the partition to the md
, waited to mirror. And after that copied the directory from the other drive back to the place it should be.
And if somebody is confused: ReiserFS =\\= Reiser4 =\\= (ext2 ~ ext3) =\\= ext4
