For what it's worth, IIRC in Linux the code for ext3fs is separated from 
ext2fs - it's not handled by a bunch of #ifdefs but a separate (and much 
larger - IIRC at least 2x the code) codebase. From this I think that 
adding ext3 functionality to FreeBSD will also be similar - like a port 
of a completely different filesystem from scratch.
