Subject: Does `-O bigalloc` still conflict with `delalloc`?

The `ext4(5)` man page, contained in the most recent e2fsprogs still says:

	Warning: The bigalloc feature is still under development, and may not be fully  supported
              with your kernel or may have various bugs.  Please see the web page‐
     for details.  May clash with delayed allocation (see  nodelal‐
              loc mount option).

Is a bad interaction with `delalloc` still an issue and should we be using the `nodelalloc` option?
