They've been working (or at least the page has been up) on that
for a very, very long time now, and all they have managed to do
is port the jfsutils... which isn't hard at all. As you can see
by looking at their patch, jfsutils is already quite portable.
I'm afraid it'll be a long time before we see anyone actually
using JFS under any BSD. But yes, it would be nice to have yet
another filesystem option.
