Care to quantify "Many people"?

As far as I know, it's a small minority, and will be for a long time.  Most
people are _very_ conservative about choosing what filesystem they use, and
reiserfs doesn't exactly have a stellar reputation for stability.

Obviously something extremely hard to quantify in the open source world. FWIW, I've used it on production servers for 2-3 years.

One of the few metrics for this kind of thing that is even remotely useful is the debian package popularity contest.

In the latest stats, out of 1504 computers that submitted data these are the fs utils results(number claims to be those that use the package regularly).

xfsprogs: 70
jfsutils: 26
reiserfsprogs: 141
e2fsprogs: 1071

unfortunately, the ext2 utils manipulate ext3 filesystems, so this info is impossible to deduce.

Rough answer says that a bit more than 10% of debian users reporting statistics are reiserfs users.
