We also would be happy if it summary patch would be the part of the 
official JFFS2 (at least the erase block summary).

If I remember well David (dwmw2) said that it should be the part of 
JFFS3 only, because he would like to see only bugfixes in JFFS2. He did 
not mentioned that the reason is that it is messy. If it is true we will 
clean it (or partially rewrite if necessery) just please say some words 
about exactly why and where it is messy.
