    The included userspace server is largely proof-of-concept code and
    could do with a fair amount of rounding out. Things this could use to
    make it interesting:

    - authentication
    - run-time configuration
    - ability to serve from files and block devices (MD, LVM, crypto-loop)
    - ability to serve from /dev/sgX interfaces with native SCSI (tapes, CDRW..)

    Don't know what the state of interop with other initiators is though.

    I'll also point out that for many Linux<->Linux purposes, nbd is a workable
    substitute.
