But hey, do you really want to release a Linux 3.0 kernel without
serious layered filesystem functionality?

Shame on you,
Pete

PS.: Sorry for being such a pest in this regard, but filesystem layering
is one of the most important missing bits to excel out of the box in
* live distros
* diskless computing
* flash based systems
Even the linux based commercial PBX solution (mobydick), I bought, ships
with it.
PPS.: Bad timing, I know, but I'm glad, that Al is back to life again..
