yes., at least reiser4.
it also gets things done (untarring) much faster as well, at the price of occasional:
'freezes' for 1/2 to 2 seconds from time to time (completely unacceptable for audio)
during delayed tree balancing or block writing/allocation or something
also rm -rf is very slow.
for certain niche cases, its a fantastic filesystem.
unless youre creating hundreds/thousands of files a minute (eg, busy Maildir host, or VFS-backed database that dont use a monolithic file (a la git, not berk or MySQL)), i wouldnt bother..
