I know it hurts to have someone else's code chosen for mainline inclusion. But I really hope the SCST folks and the LIO folks can work together. It seems that the combined feature set of these two packs a heck of a punch. I think this is an area that extremely important and underrated. Most people can't afford expensive SAN tech. And having the ability to use a simple linux box as a full FC/iSCSI/AoE disk array is just incredible, esp. when it can be used as all 3 at the same time. As the standards change it's nice to be able to utilize new hardware and designs w/o losing your investment in old infrastructure.
