Status of fragment support, advantages of having fewer indoes

There wasn't much information regarding fragment support of ext2/3 since 2003
[1], Andreas stating that there were problems with the xattr implementation. Has
this changed in the meanwhile?

My second question is regarding the bytes-per-inode ratio: What benefits would I
gain from having fewer inodes? I reckon it's only diskspace (if so, how much?).

best regards,
Michael Renner
