It's interesting, though I'd say, having used BeOS and therefore BFS for
a few years, you'd want to pick this filesystem clone because of the
attribute support, not because of journaling.  File attributes was
really neat, and gave the filesystem database-like capabilities, but
it's not something that will mesh easily with 99% of the unixy tools out
there, so it almost could be considered "baggage".
