This is not to say that rfs is not going to be equally
stable as ext2. Today it isn't.
One of the issues with anything journalling is that it
will be more complicated than ext2. The extra complexity
is not bad by itself; it does mean that error recovery
is more involved and that it will have a flatter design-
to-market curve than a baseline system like ext2.
The VFS file system might be closer to prime time only
because it was based on an existing commercial product.
