Default reiser4 distro?

I've heard that the latest Mandrake 9.2 beta includes an option to install a 2.6 test kernel so I was wondering if it supports installing onto a reiser4 partition? If not, are there any Linux distros out there yet that do support this filesystem as I saw some benchmarks recently and it would seem to be the fastest Linux filesystem there is.

I was also surprised to see that ext3 is actually faster at most operations than XFS- which came as a surprise. Does XFS have any advantages over ext3 to the normal user?
