    Hmm.. 20 years ago I was hooking Fujitsu Super-Eagles to Sun3/280 servers.
    If you're going to claim that the current SCSI core is *that* far behind, you're
    going to have to back it up. Remember that making exaggerated claims is a good
    way to make people not listen to the *rest* of your message.

    Seen in include/scsi/scsi.h:

    * FIXME: bit0 is listed as reserved in SCSI-2, but is
    * significant in SCSI-3. For now, we follow the SCSI-2
    * behaviour and ignore reserved bits.

    So obviously, it's at least the number of years since SCSI-3 was defined,
    but no more than the time since SCSI-2. According to
    SCSI-2 devices started showing up in 1988, and X3.131-1994 came out in 1994.
    1996 saw the first SCSI-3 proposals.

    I'll give you *one* decade, but not two. :)
