I gave up on journalling myself because IMO it complicates
things a lot and the problem it solves is very very small.

The impact in disk seeks is non-trivial to predict, but it is
very hard to argue that it will not lead to an increase in
disk seeks.  (This is really a variant of the age old argument
between jounaling filesystems and "traditional" filesystems)

I can only recommend that you try :-)

We need more ideas and more people trying out ideas.
