But why not put ufs in there too?  And while you're reorganizing, why not
organize the whole thing into a sensible hierarchy, something like:

				(hfs? hpfs? xfs? vxfs? The possibilities
				are endless)
				{kern,proc,spec,fifo,dead}fs, fdesc, portal
				nfs, coda (afs?)

It might also be aesthetically pleasing to have the various fs utilities
(fsck, newfs, dumpfs, tunefs, fsirand, etc.) organized in a similar way,
but that discussion has already been had....
