Could you please determine the term "large file"? Ardour is for editing
audio, IMO this leads more often to "small files", while I don't know if
ext is better for small files, it anyway does work with large and small
files, without causing issues. What distros ship with something
different, but ext3 or ext4 for an automated default install? Suse did
use reiserFS a long time ago, for a very short time.

That's why I call it "exotic".
