    Haven't you done that already? JFFS2 write behaviour is the best-case
    scenario for any FTL. When the delta cache is finished, LogFS will be
    pretty close to that as well.

    Not sure if anyone would specifically target FTL. Being well-suited for
    those beasts is just a side-effect.

    The FTL is still a net loss. Without that FAT enabling layer a real
    flash filesystem would be more efficient.
