> now that ZFS' IP has been imported into Oracle

You write as though this is a completed task.  In reality, there are several
hurdles (as seen from the IBM offer), and it will take at least six months to
get to the point that you assume has been complete.  To EFFECTIVELY merge the
IP will probably take a few years.

As with the IBM offer, the Oracle offer isn't done, and could fail.  At this
point, Chris is correct in choosing to move forward with BTRFS.  As for what
happens when/if Oracle buys Sun, that's best decided AFTER it happens.
