I'd be interested in it as a user since I use FSFS.  Some of the other
changes since 1.4.2 look useful too.

I'd like to have it built against Etch libneon26 and libdb4.4 if it
seems to work with them, so that it remains Etch-like.  I usually find
that if something builds OK with Etch libs, it will usually work with
them as ./configure sorts it out, or at worst an autoupdate :)
Of course libneon27 and DB4.6 might prove essential (or might be worth
porting in themselves naturally :-))
