    But hey, do you really want to release a Linux 3.0 kernel without
    serious layered filesystem functionality?

    Shame on you,

    PS.: Sorry for being such a pest in this regard, but filesystem layering
    is one of the most important missing bits to excel out of the box in
    * live distros
    * diskless computing
    * flash based systems
    Even the linux based commercial PBX solution (mobydick), I bought, ships
    with it.
    PPS.: Bad timing, I know, but I'm glad, that Al is back to life again..
