In principle I think you are right. AXFS and XFS are similar names
and it could lead to confusion. I think XFS should change its name to
prevent confusion. I think by 2 years AXFS will be used in orders of
magnitude more machines anyway. ;)

About opposite end of the spectrum... Carsten just said AXFS might be
nice for s390, so I'm not sure how true that is.

I'm kind of attached to the name now.
