I've just compiled a custom kernel with EXT4, converted my partitions to EXT4 and then flashed a modified boot image with the appropriate mounts.

IT WORKS! :D

Literally just done it so too early to say what benefits there are, but there's no denying it's fast! :D

it might improve performance while starting a download.
right now starting a download in market is pretty much the only thing that can slow down this phone.

Well, it must be the I/O somehow. Compare it to 2x 2x review by Anandtech, the I/O benchmark went up from 2511 tested by Anand to 3800 in your benchmark! That's a massive leap.
