True. My goal is that if this works out for everyone, that someday it 
might get pulled into the distribution. ZFS has it advantages, but you 
are correct. Not everyone in the world wants to use ZFS (for whatever

independent, as it should.

Down the road, I can imagine some advanced features that might require
ZFS, but we can talk about that when the time comes.
