Note: "permalinks" may not be as permanent as we would like,
direct links of old sources may well be a few messages off.

Many thanks for all the advice and suggestions folks, much appreciated.
As much as I would love to use ext4, after reviewing everything and
weighing up the pros and cons, I think it's probably wiser to stick with
the tried and tested stability of ext3. Faster fscking alone does make
ext4 very tempting, but it looks like it might be a while before it's
guaranteed to be as reliable as ext3. Will probably revisit this on the
next upgrade in a couple of years, but as Christian pointed out, btrfs
may be the way to go by then.

Thanks again.
