Not reiser specifically but more a thing saying, if you want to export
alternative filesystems then look at BLFS Chapter XX (can't recall which
one it is off hand but there is a specific one now).  It would probably
go on the mke2fs page and again on the Installing e2fsprogs page.

Alternatively, to avoid cluttering the book we could have a new page in
Chapter 2 [ You know, the one no-one seems to read ;-) ] called
Alternatives which would point to that page (it'd work for the Editors
as well).  Again, a Gerard decision.
