Besides, I doubt if ext4 will never make into openSUSE:

- lack of customer requests.

not yet. Look at the growth rate of needed diskspace in the last years.

- doesn't really meet any needs that cannot be handled by other

SCNR: AFAIR a manager of IBM said something like this: "Noone will ever
need more than 8 kByte of Memory..."

- Novell QA is not testing ext4 nor are any of Novells partners.

Someone will do it if its time to. Maybe from other distros.

- If you run into a problem with ext4, there is no support available  
  from the openSUSE kernel maintainers.
