Probably not.  It's just that I've used pretty well all the filesystems out 
there, and none of them is appreciably better for a home user than any 
other.  Putting an ext4 fs on a new partition is something I'd do without a 
second thought.  Copying everything off one partition to put it onto a new 
ext4 partition seems pointless.  But migrating it in-place seems like an 
uglier hack than adding ext3 support onto ext2 was.
