I am not following two things:

  Do you think that (for things that use the high-level API) it is
  better to use (upstream, via pkgsrc) libfuse and perfuse, instead of
  using librefuse?  If so, could you explain why?  It seems to me to add
  a layer of indirection and a daemon.

  It seems the underlying problem is that upstream libfuse is not good
  about compatibility, and thus filesystems that haven't update to the
  30 API are troubled.
