The project (Namesys) seems to be Hans Reiser, and his personal problems (he
has pled not guilty in the murder of his estranged wife) may lead to its
demise but no one knows at this point.

The only problem I have with reiserfs is that suse's partition manager doesn't
seem to be able to resize a reiserfs partition, which is why I installed with
ext3 when I added Suse 10.1

I wouldn't change to ext3 unless you anticpated resizing problems.
