At this point, with < 2 months to desired release date, I do not support
changing the filesystem. If we think a new filesystem is a priority (and 
not everyone does from other conversations I've had), we can intergrate
it into joyride as soon as 9.1 is out the door so we have plenty of time
to do formal testing and get end-user feedback.
