Speaking of which...if anyone who can talk knows anything about how
AdvFS filesystems are laid out on-disk, I'd love to talk about it.  I
know a site that's using my tar for backups, going direct-to-disk for
file contents on FFS filesystems to avoid touching atimes and ctimes,
and it could be cool to be able to do the same for AdvFS.
