Would ext3 with data journalling be ok then? 

The switch for the journalling of file contents is a mount option
"data=journal". However, I had difficulties to test it, since my afs
cache is on the root partition and the data=journal option resulted in
the root partition kept mounted read-only.  Apparently, the remount
does not work as expected in that case.
