I've read posts from either him or from one of his lackies being very
enthusiastic about doing a very "challenging" port of ReiserFS to some
BSD, so he's definitely positive about the idea. Don't know where the
post is exactly, but it definitely was public. I do not expect him to
convert it over to a BSD license, but to keep under GPL to protect his
investment in it. He runs his business based on these things.
