I've wondered if we should rename reiserfs to something else. As-is,
it's not likely to attract any developers since it may as well be named
hitlerfs or something similarly uncomfortable to explain to a
significant other as what you've been working on.

That is, assuming it's going to continue to exist in-tree...
