    Yeah, I'm game. I've been kinda looking for something to hack on for a
    while now, and I think I've found it =)

    Since there seems to be a lot of discussion about the VFS layer at the
    moment on linux-kernel, perhaps we should form linux-vfs to discuss the
    future shape of the VFS layer, to try and unclutter this list a bit.
    Unless there's already a list for this which I've missed. Tom? Dave?
