In case anyone missed it, SGI released "most" of XFS under GPL yesterday
(or the day before) ... I think the missing bits are the "AT&T SYS VR4"
parts (there was a reference to some other proprietary parts as well).

I hope someone qualified (not me) could take what's been released and
put in the missing pieces ... I expect SGI may be doing this themselves.

It would make sense to have both.  ReiserFS looks very interesting ...
