Why be inconsistent? i.e., if ntfs, adosfs, etc., can move, why not
ufs and nfs?
isofs/cd9660 should probably be flattened down to one level of
hierarchy. Its current location is a 4.4-ism, and it's not at all
clear that it's really The Right Thing. (it should probably be
fs/iso9660 or something, and 'iso9660' should be accepted as a valid
name for the FS as well as cs9660.)
(i've not put much thought into it, though.)
