The thing is, I do not see a lot of stuff going on with JFS on LKML. 
reiser v3 bugs pop up now and then, XFS had spats going on and ext3 is 
rather lack luster and still gets reports now and then. Upstream going 
with ext3 is rather expected since Redhat is the backer of ext3 just as 
Suse is behind reiser v3.
