I gave a quick re-read-thru on this and did not find anything
questionable, nor recall any issue pending.  Unless somebody
objects in the coming few days, let's move it to 'master' as part of
the first batch for 2.2.

I'll re-read these two before deciding to merge them to 'next'.  Any
pending issues from the previous discussions?

A filesystem based backend/external daemon that is compatible with
the traditional on-disk format might be another fun demonstration.

Looking forward to shepherding the whole thing ahead ;-)  The most
fun part awaits us but there is a long way.
