Based on experienced with other systems (ubuntu etc) a rebuild would
be teh best way if you want to move from one to the other (or a full
backup of disk then restore all the files) due to existing files on
the ext3 system not gaining the benefits from ext4 - only new files.

Personally I'm skipping such an extensive change until Centos 6 is due
and I'll need to test on that anyway - and can verify an appropriate
ext4 configuration at the some time.
