[Xen-users] Xen domU filesystem best-practices question

For file-backed disk images used for domUs, what is the current
best-practice filesystem to use? That is, the filesystem with the
fewest edge cases and failure modes.

I was told (6 months back or so), to absolutely not use a journalled
filesystem on a file-backed image, and so I started moving to ext2. Is
this advice still pertinent, or would a journalled filesystem now be
better (XFS or ext3, for instance).
