I wrote a patch to do this some time back.  Stefan Esser
<[EMAIL PROTECTED]> pointed out that this would be made redundant when
(if?) softupdates is turned into a mount option.  According to him,
mckusick agreed with his point of view on this matter.  You can find

You can find my patch to newfs at

may be a worthwhile addition until se's patch goes in.
