UFS is excellent. your problem is that you like to have "lots of
filesystems". why don't just make one or one per disk?
i have one per disk/mirror configuration everywhere except one place where
i made separate filesystem for /var/spool/squid for some reasons.
tell me what's your needs and how many/what disks you have.
UFS is best-performer on real load, runs on almost no RAM, but uses more
if available for caching.
