Well, the issue was if you're using it on a server, and using what a  
lot of people still consider the default (the inode fileserver),  
apocalyptic dataloss may occur.

I would say that in addition to recommending people use logging with  
ufs (or better, zfs!), that we should also push for deprecation of the  
inode fileserver ;)
