Upcoming filesystems?

There was a journalling fs in FreeBSD in the past, however, it was removed
(after it was imported from 4.4BSD-Lite2's distribution) because there
are few people who want it.

Not so sure whether there's an ongoing projects to have a journaling FS
in FreeBSD, I guess not, however, I have heard that there're many
efforts on other FS's, for example, tjr's "tfs" (an extent-filesystem)
etc. You can find them in p4.

I think the only issue with ReiserFS to prevent it from getting its way
into FreeBSD's kernel source code might be the licence. Implementing it
from scratch is possible, but it really needs a lot of work.

Personally I'd prefer the SoftUpdates approach, so I am more interested
in what made you to think it doesn't fit your needs, performance?
security features? or others?
