Reiser4 - Evolution or Intelligent Design?

So it may just be that Hans Reiser's long wait is nearing its
I sincerely hope so. I have been using Reiser4 daily for well over a year
ThinkPad and its USB attached external drive. To put it simply: The
Reiser4 filesystem works very well indeed. Perhaps its code is not as
polished as some of the other Linux Kernel packages may be, but that
polishing will happen as soon as it is allowed into the evolutionary
cauldron which is the Linux Kernel.
Not only does Reiser4 deserve to be released from the Purgatory of Andrew
Morton's tree where it's proven itself to be harmless if nothing else, but
also the world deserves to have unfettered, if experimental, access to it
should they so desire. Any remaining problems will either get fixed by
evolution, or Reiser4 will fall by the wayside as a bad mutation, as has
happened to devfs.
To play God with Reiser4 now completely belies the claim that Linux
is "Evolution, not Intelligent Design". Exactly the same could be said for
the suspend2 system which also works very well indeed.
