Aye.  That would be great!  In fact, people are are welcome to start
from the installer (hack that it is, it does contain essentially a
level-1 ufs interface).  It should be updated to level 2, and a couple
of features should be hashed out (like a working cache--it's not caching
anything at the moment).

Again, if anyone (Hoshi?) wants to pick this up and run with it, feel free!
