Why Reiser 4 isn't in the kernel

Just so people know there are a few reasons Reiser4 isn't in the kernel besides bugs

1) 4K stacks: Reiser is written with the assumption that 8k stacks are the way to go. 4k saves memory and overhead so that's the way to go, everything else works with 4k stacks now so should reiser4

2) Plugin architecture: reiser4 has a plugin architecture. Most of the kernel developers see now reason this has to be a reiser only feature.
