[clug] un-long-listable directory

Just read the interview with Reiser on slashdot today.  Hans Resier 
bags out ext3, but I think he's got his head stuck somewhere funny.  If 
ResierFS keeps giving you trouble, switch to ext3.

Whatever the faults of it's creators, ext3 is very, very stable.  And 
in an emergency you can still switch it back to ext2 with literally no 
work at all.

I love Reiser's plans for the filesystem, and I plan to switch to it... 
after seeing it working stably on other machines for about 10 years.
