Well, both are probably equally sane codewise AFAIK.  I would probably want
to do some research to see how well supported Reiser is in the 2.3 kernel,
if everyone goes to ext3 in 2.4, you don't want to get orphaned with Reiser. 
Ext3 also has a strong argument for it in that if Something Bad(tm) happens,
you can use an older kernel to mount it directly as an ext2 filesystem and
copy data off of it.  In _practice_, I'd say that Reiser probably has a bit
of an edge in overall usage at this moment in time from what I've seen, but
I make no predictions on how that will change in the future.
