Um, have you guys noticed that the book *does* discuss FSFS now? About
80% of the material in ghudson's original document is now discussed in
chapter 5. There's even a big comparison table between BDB and FSFS.

The question is: when people now come to IRC or users@ list and say,
"tell me about FSFS", where should we point them? To the relevant
section in chapter 5? Or to ghudson's original doc sitting in notes/?
The latter is certainly more technical, which is why I'm loathe to
point it out to newbies doing preliminary research.
