Neil is an absolute Unix wizard - I worked with him about 10 years ago and was regularly impressed by his work on internal projects (which unfortunately for the most part appear to have remained internal). It's great to see his work on MD enjoying a wider audience and I for one would be a lot more likely to trust code he's written; for example notice that he's identified and is proactively fixing a potential issue *before* it eats users' data rather than afterwards as is usually the case. Let's not forget about his work on NFS too... last I checked (which was years ago - I don't use NFS much these days) he was doing some work on scalability and performance issues as well as an authentication layer. Interesting stuff...
