Is it?  The 'lazy' initialisation of inodes makes newfs quicker.
But the inodes themselves are twice the size and will take up more
system memory....

FFSv1 should be able to handle filesystems with up to 2^32 fragments,
With 8k fragments I make that 32TB.
Since NetBSD currently has problems describing disks over 2TB, and there
are known FS corruption issues over that limit, there is no necessity to
use FFSv2.
Remember the FS code is identical, only the sizes of some fields changed.
