	good news are here. the story,25,36807,00.html

	tells that SGI will release the source code of their XFS. it
lacks some features but is able to handle with files of very big size,
has b-tree layout on the media and, the most important, it is journaling
file system. if the license is acceptable I guess it will quite easy
to port XFS into NetBSD.
