Dumb question: why?

Maybe I was asleep, but I don't recall seeing much discussion or exposition

- Why the kernel needs two clustered fileystems

- Why GFS is better than OCFS2, or has functionality which OCFS2 cannot
  possibly gain (or vice versa)

- Relative merits of the two offerings


Maybe this has all been thrashed out and agreed to.  If so, please remind me.
