Sounds more like FUD, or can you substantiate that? I had a disk go bad
recently, I copied the partition with dd_rescue (which rocks), and used
reiserfsck to fix up a few things. If I lost any files they weren't
important, but a bunch of files had nullblocks in them. The latter is
obviously unavailable with any fs.

You don't know a hell of a lot about reiserfs. It's had quotas since,
uhhm, SuSE 8.0 (or was that ACLs, quotas even earlier)? Other distros
were much slower to catch up, but that's a poblem with those distros,
not reiserfs.
