    Told you, I can't code it. I could work on making an initial design for the
    most important part though, the datasystem that separates the two filesystems
    and holds the meta-data and data in self-contained atoms. I KNOW I won't
    get it right the first time, but I can give you a place to start.

    I absolutely can not code anything in the kernel at this time. I've tried. I'll
    get it eventually ;-)

    Citing the original message:

    I know I spout a lot of crap, and wish I could just do it all (can we get
    a "Make a small device driver for virtual hardware in Linux 2.4 and 2.5"
    tutorial up on!), but I think I've got some good ideas. At
    any rate, the good is kept and the bad is weeded out, right?

    I actually started pretty sure that someone would want me to come up
    with an initial design for the datasystem that is used to control this.
    Not that I drew it out before-hand, mind you; I just thought someone
    would ask. I KNEW someone would tell me to code it, which is why
    I said I can't right off the bat.
