    Well, this is open source ... you don't get to request new features; you
    get to implement them, so if you need something that SCSI or the FC
    transport doesn't provide, you just add it (rather than coding either a
    fix or an enhancement for your driver alone).

    However, you're quite lucky. So far, as James Smart said, I haven't
    seen you ask for any features that we don't either provide or are in
    process of agreeing the implementation of.
