Surely, having fses on reiserfs is not a bad idea... but I think that is
paranoid to have reiserfs to speed up the cache of a network fs!! I'm using
reiserfs for my cache dir of squid, because with 6gb of data it surely makes
the difference... but for a little cache, and when you say that may exist
some overheads, I don't see any really advantage.

Anyway, a config option for optimizing is always welcome: but may the option
be changed on-the-way? ;)

I'll appreciate any comments :).
