Unfortunately I think Reiser4 has been held back by a bit of politics on
both sides. My observation is that Hans and his team are brilliant, and so
are many of the kernel people that object, and since there has been heat
in the past, well - you probably get where I'm going with this.
I wonder what the remaining complaints are at this point. If it's just
stylistic I'd say that it's silly to keep it out as it's a filesystem (not
a piece of core code). If people aren't getting hit with panics or data
munching bugs, and the code is reasonably good, why has it been held up
for _so_ long?
