Ok, so it deserves the experimental tag then ;)

not yet, I usually ask if there is much/any interest in patches to
other folks code before I create the patch. I don't like maintaining
forks of code so I generally like to know interest prior to the coding ;)
I'll be at LCA for the next 4 days starting tommorow, so it might be a
week before I send the patch. What version of xfs_bmap is best for 
patching against? cvs?
