I propose to reject this until it's in the upstream kernel and we take
that kernel - and even then only as experimental filesystem.

What is the proposal here? If it's just to include the reiser4 KMP, I
don't have any objections do that since there is a maintainer other
than me looking after it. For actually integration with the
distribution, I'm firmly against it. We don't want to add full support
for a file system with an unknown future. We'd either need to drag
around the code (and maintain it) forever or leave users with supported
configurations out in the cold.

By "integration" I suppose you mean making it show up in yast2. I find
it reasonable not to show it in yast2 for exactly that argument
(uncertain future), but by default only. Let's say, if the user passes
a "reiser4" boot param, then yast2 offers it in the dropdown box.
Similar to you needing the "xfs" boot parameter on Fedora/anaconda to
make XFS selectable.
