Anybody know what's in Reiser4 that VFS doesn't like (link please)?
Reiser4 plug-ins have (had?) the ability to alter the semantics of
things, like making files into directories inside which you could see
meta-files like file/uid and file/size which contained meta-data and
such accessible as normal files to all the unix tools (which is a very
good idea IMO). You could get things like chmod by just 'echo root
>file/owner' or something, very nice.
This was frowned upon by kernel developers who felt that it belonged in
the kernel VFS (if at all), rather than in reiser4 directly.
