I'm not sure that all SSDs should only be used with ext2. Early/cheaper JMicron-based SSDs have lots of issues with small writes which can cause big slowdowns, and certainly journalling wouldn't help for that. But there are now several drives that dont have anywhere near the same performance problems, and since SSDs are still an emerging technology really, I'd expect things to keep improving. Point is, just because someone has an SSD, doesn't mean they need to use ext2 to cut down on writes.
