Thank you for trying DragonFlyBSD :)

No. There is no such a "mount_extfs4" command, but the "mount_ext2fs".

Ext4 is not supported on DragonFlyBSD. But the "ext2fs" module and the "mount_ext2fs" well support ext3 in the read-only mode. Writing ext3 may be supported as well, but I don't remember correctly whether I tried that...

FUSE is still a work in progress at the moment. Also, I don't know how FUSE works with ext4.
