I'm afraid adding write support to XFS or reiserfs is not easy, and then
there's the license issue. ZFS might not have the best license either but we
can work with it. Apple's updated HFS license is also something that could be
worked with but Apple is interested in ZFS too so it must have something
interesting ;-).

NetBSD has a Journalling Google SoC, definitely interesting if they get far.
