Ok, I have nothing better to do this evening... :)

I'm looking at the earliest XFS design paper I can find,
http://oss.sgi.com/projects/xfs/design_docs/xfsdocs93_pdf/arch.pdf

(Curtis' name is at the top of the authors list)

I do see "xFS" but I do not see "eXtended."  (at least not
anywhere near the words "File System."

Dan, if you have a different (older?) version, please forward
it to me - I'd like to add it to our archive of original 
xFS documents.
