Don't know about you, but after Al Viro's post I went and checked VFS source code - and he's entirely correct.

I never claimed to be a "visionary." I'm far, far from that. The idea isn't even original, people have talked about it for years. It just strikes me that it makes a lot of sense given system architecture trends. Outright dismissal accompanied by foul language, holier-than-thou attitudes and outright insults says much more about Al than it does me.
Al definitely lost a notch or too on my respect ladder and that's a pity because I've generally enjoyed reading his posts/articles.

I'm no linguist but anybody who disagrees is a dweeb. :)
