Journalled FFS is not a replacement for LFS.  It has approximately
one-half the write throughput under a workload that continuously
creates small files, for example.

Wasabi is out of business.  Nothing is going to happen "under Wasabi
patronage" ever again.

That said, WAPBL is much more suitable than LFS for most users simply
because it actually *works*.
