FSv2 is a hand-wave.
Personally, I see it as a broad swath of API changes to align our
needs with the underlying storage. Trowbridge noted that our current
API makes it *really* difficult to implement an effective backend. I'd
also like to see a backend that allows for parallel PUTs during the
commit process. Hyrum sees FSv2 as some kind of super-key-value
storage with layers on top, allowing for various types of high-scaling
Whatever it is... it is a placeholder for a new round of innovation on
our repository. It is whatever the community would like to see from a
new backend. We haven't *ever* really worked through a discussion of a
backend. The BDB just evolved, from before the community was really
built up. The FSFS backend was dropped in as a fait d'accompli. And
thereafter, it was small evolutions for the backends.
