Apparently my analogy is just about perfect. Edison's lightbulb attempts didn't all simply fail to work. Some were too dim. Some burned out too quickly.
Problems appear and are fixed, until it works. You demonstrated one problem with database filesystems. Do you think that no one else has noticed that problem or thought of ways to fix it? No so!
Are you aware that the "should be done in userspace" argument is exactly why Linux was supposed to fail? It isn't a microkernel. Microkernels were supposed to be the greatest thing ever. Well, they aren't. The performance penalties for all that protection are too great.
