- Snapshotting
- Journaling/fastrecovery
- Dynamic partition resizing
- Dynamic slice addition/removal/clustering
- ACLs and MAC file-access-policy
- Metadata support

Enough ?

The way could be JFS, XFS or AdvFS. Personally I think that
reiser is far from beeing mature (the sole fact that creating a
 >2GB single file on a ReiserFS initialized as 32bits will make
you loos the entire partition worries me more than a bit...).

AdvFS and XFS probably have licensing problems, JFS
is likely to be easier to get into a BSD license.
