Thanks for your work, this is going to be pretty handy.
As a side note, another good filesystem project it would be nice to
support in FreeBSD is FiST  and more specifically its powerful
union filesystem  which seems to be far less broken than FreeBSD's
For those who don't know this, FiST only requires to have a no-op
stackabke filesystem (called wrapfs IIRC) implemented on a given
operating system to allow to take the best of all other filesystems
implemented thanks to FiST. This includes unionfs, cryptfs, gzipfs, ...
They are implemented in pseudo-C code and ``merged'' with the
OS-dependant wrapfs to create a new filesystem.
