Adding new, bigger disks and new filesystems? Wanting these to be the 
fastest that is reasonably possible?
As for the system that arose the question (again) for me, I've decided 
to make it ext3, wait for a while as ext4 matures, and convert it later.
This interesting possibility made me decide for ext3 (again).
