I second the “why not ZFS” question here, even under 9.3. While it a harder to install a zfs-only system under 9.x, you can. I built a number of them before 10.x came out, some still in production. In addition to the ability to (almost) dynamically move space around between “filesystems”, you get the end to end data integrity features.
