FWIW: I'd like to see it go in.

Ceph is new and experimental so you're not going to see production shops
like ours jumping up and down saying we use it and are tired of merging it,
like we would say if if Lustre were (again) on the table.

However I will say Ceph looks good and in the interest of nuturing future
options, I'm for merging it!
