I think this matter is documented now.
I think it could be documented elsewhere or in more detail if someone wanted to
do so, but that involves someone pointing to a specific manpage or section of
the handbook, and submitting language.
The people on freebsd-doc can help, deal with mdoc or Docbook formatting, etc.

I am willing to end the discussion if there is nothing productive to say.

Matthias is right about what? My goodness, you also are aware of people
talking about softupdates in comparison to journalled filesystems often?

I've suggested a change to the sysctl's governing the syncer's timing, which
ought to have a noticable impact on the issues Matthias has brought up.
Feedback is welcome.
(I generally am happy to look into changes and see if they are improvements.)

You're awarded -1 karma for the patronizing tone.
Feel free to read other threads if you don't like what I have to say.
PS: Please refrain from stating my position for me, JT.
I'd be happier if you quoted what I said and disagreed honestly with it.
