Sorry, I probably hid at the sight of "Journal rewrite proposal".
There were several in the air. The changes you have made are good, I
just didn't know that one of the journal reimplementations had
actually gone ahead :-)

Is it possible for you to add a single file that says the "journal
storage" version at the root of it? Something like

   $ cat .sugar/default/datastore/store/format

That would make things a ton easier for ds-backup. ds-backup client
can read that file and tell the server that it's a "format 2" backup,
so the server can re-org the files before the client rsyncs across...

Without something like that, an upgrade to a new format in a large
school would swamp RF for days...
