There are a bunch of people who know a fair bit about it and have been
happy to help debug issues, including quite recently.  Besides, it's
pretty stable now and isn't bitrotting too badly.

That said, we're hanging out for btrfs to be stable - It would be nice,
and it's sort of inherited a bit from zfs and a bit from reiserfs in its
ways of doing things.

Bron ( running local Maildirs on it right now, synced with offlineimap to
       FM.  I wouldn't dream of running it production yet - it dies horribly
       if you ever fill it more than about 70% )
