Speaking of SGI releasing source I noticed that they also plan to
release OpenVault, which is an automated tape library management
system. This set me thinking about the discussion of your target
application for the fat-inode FS which is an HSM system.

Is OpenVault of interest to you or do you already have something to
steer tape robots?

Just curious,
