Please make the journal file unmodified by user processes

  Please forbid user level process to touch or unling the journal
file when the partition is ext3 mounted ... at all !
  So far this weakness has been my main problem when using ext3
on production systems. Happened to rpmfind machines a couple of times,
at best a program removed the journal inode from the FS list and
it cannot be mounted at next reboot. At worse the content of the
journal.dat is modified and the machine oopses and crash.
  This just arrived again on one of the W3C web servers where
and rsync removed it and the server could not found the partition
at next reboot.

  please fix this, just relying on chattr +i is far too weak for
real use !
