The kernel patch might just be a few lines long, but every new file system will mean that extra work needs to be done *outside* the kernel: Every distribution needs a new line to /etc/fstab, modifications to rc.sysinit (or similiar). The output from "mount" will be even harder to read, and all users will se *yet* another strange directory when browsing /.
As a side note, I don't really like that the desktop environments are moving away from / as the "root" and introducing concepts like "My Computer" instead, but if / is getting filled up with strange directores...
Can someone explain to me why it's impossible to create a tree with sysfs and securityfs semantics below /proc/sysfs and /proc/securityfs?
