So, I propose to remove softdep when we import the journalling code, and to
go forward with the focus on improving journalling.

I agree with this in principle, but as an admin running file systems with
softdeps now (netbsd-4 mostly, and never experienced any problems with
softdeps) this migration would force me to dump, newfs and restore serious
amounts of data, so would be a huge pain.

Seconded. To achieve the same performance as I have today with softdeps, it is crucial that I must be able to switch to journaled ffs without hassle.
