Interesting. I'd be interested in knowing why, if you can share that
information. I'm using a Reiser-only installation right now, but it
requires a rather large journal (at least, that is what the installation
told me when I tried to create a small /boot partition, about 15 MB or
so -- minimum partition size was stated at just over 100 MB). Ext3 seems
like a good alternative; I've never used xfs at all.

I thought you had to run fsck to determine if the filesystem is clean?
As for replaying the journal, that seems to be a constant with Reiser.
What you say definitely makes sense, but seems to be contradicted in
practice, at least insofar as my log files tell me.
