No ext3 on Android?

It seems like the only filesystem supported on the HTC Hero's SD card is FAT. That is sad, since Linux supports no less than 40 filesystems. And the only option you have is the worst of them? Something is going terribly wrong at Google.

has it occurred to you that FAT is the only file system that works when you insert the SD card into a Mac or PC?

Who cares if all I want is interop with a Linux system? Besides, there are drivers for the others. Even if I take the SD card and format it with ext2, the Android would reformat it with FAT. Again, something is going terribly wrong here.
