	I've been using shake for the past months and I can tell you that I note a substantial difference in my system if a few weeks goes by without me running it ( i have a cron at the last day of the month)
	Its quite easy to install and use, but no package for ubuntu.
	Other than the targz I just needed libattr1-dev, attr and user_xattr on my fstab:
	UUID=e3740d46-69f9-4a4b-8f5c-707d262369a4 /home           ext3    noatime,user_xattr         0       2

	give it a try.
	by the way I too have my disks many times close to 100% full.
	$ sudo fsck.ext3 -fnv /dev/sda5
	185295 inodes used (3.29%)
	26355 non-contiguous inodes (14.2%)
	# of inodes with ind/dind/tind blocks: 32742/519/0
	10411844 blocks used (91.77%)

ps. My emails tend to sound authority and aggressive. I'm sorry in advance. I'll try to be more assertive as time goes by...
