It seems that some of the "performance sucks" feeling should actually be 
directed at the 3Ware RAID adapter that is common in those threads 
rather than the filesystem.

Using Bonnie against hardware RAID5 on a Dell PowerEdge 2850 (PERC4 
something-or-other using Megaraid driver) on ext3 gives 75 MB/s.
