Sure I am! It's something I haven't done before, and I always like to
learn new stuff.

That's notes/fs-improvements.txt, right? (I already read your draft, of
course, despite your explicit order not to. How could I resist?)

By the way, if anyone knows about any papers on the subject, please
yell. I'm searching the ACM digital library right now, getting promising
results, too. But it's easy to miss a relevant article.
