Right now, nothing.  What mckusick was saying was that he didn't want
to have a "field day" where everyone would have to put "softdep" for
their filesystems in /etc/fstab.  Yes, this isn't happening now since
ps's patches are backwards-compatible, but unless you always want to
keep that backwards-compatibility (which isn't bad, IMO), everyone
will eventually have to do it.  I've no opinion either way; I'm simply
restating what I saw mckusick agree to.
