It's not his only accomplishment.  He also helped kill LFS
by moving it to the attic, and killed block devices, even
though we know that the Apple DVD code needed both block and
character versions of a disk device to support the DVDFS and
the ISO9660FS at the same time.  The block device issue is a
sore point, since it's now practically impossible to generate
tapes with odd byte boundaries instead of full records (thus
causing an implicit "conv=sysnc", even if you don't want one).

I seem to remember you supporting him killing block devices...
