[mythtv-users] Why XFS over ext3?

   May need to reformat my /usr/mythtv as it appears to be irrevocably 
b#ggered.  I'd previously done it ext3-largefiles, but people seem to 
recommend XFS, which I've never used.

   Any particular reason?  Will I have future-proof issues given that 
ext3 is the 'formal' format?  Any extra tools I need (will it all 'just 
work' with fsck, etc.)?
