From my experience the only structural stuff that is hard to get right, is
structural stuff that tries to do too much. 
I'm not trying to take away anything from all the effort that's gone into
it, and all of your developers are very clever people, but if LFS suffers
from UFS problems, won't any other FS that tries to use UFS? (Apart from
FFS, of course.)
