    I have assigned Alexei Adamovich to work full-time on the task until you and
    Alexander Viro say that it is done right. It will get cleaned up; Alexei is a
    good programmer. Some changes have already been made and we are testing them.

    If reiserfs is marked as experimental and in, then making it non-experimental
    and in, a few weeks from now, is quite likely to happen. Real users always find
    things that testers don't, but they won't find such a lot when it is a port from
    2.2 of code that has been in widespread production use for some time now.

    Do you want to leave lack of a journaling file system as a bullet point favoring
    Win2k?
