I already read that before I posted my question. Neither by this text,
nor by the one in the Wikipedia could I participate in the exitement
around ZFS. Ok, so it's a 128Bit FS. Big fat, hairy deal! I couldn't see
any advantages in using it instead of FFS (UFS), but I thought I was
missing something because porting it would have been somewhat of a hassle
and noone would go to all that trouble if it wasn't worth the effort.
