So was I.  Both redhat-config-* and webmin are administration tools used
on an installed system.

In answer to this specific question... here's the white paper on ext3
that I was looking for previously: 

Note this is not breaking news: that paper was written in 2001 when Red
Hat Linux 7.2 came out.  Perhaps the situation with the other
filesystems has changed now.

But I agree, it's much better to understand why decisions are made the
way they are, and I hope that this new development model, with more
input from and communication to the community, well result in much more
of this kind of understanding.
