end of reiserfs?

Iam not a file system expert so i cannot comment on the standard of reiserfs, but i used it for quite sometime with opensuse. Why am i saying this......well, not sure but when i read about the murder conviction of Hans Reiser i thought its worth a mention in my blog. As i see it, reiserfs4 has been struggling to get into mainline for quite sometime. Mostly due its radical ideas which were non posix compliant , they were rejected. Now with their main developer and architect out of the picture i see this as end of the road for the revolutionary FS. Will the reiser fanboys carry on with the development of reiser4 is to be seen. Its a sad to loose a really good programmer like reiser.
