I wanted to address this point briefly, not silently ignore it.

Yes, a new FS design could address the successors problem, and many
other problems, too.

I am not in the position to drive design discussion for an entirely new
FS design. If someone wants to do that, fine. I'd sure like to help out.

I want to try to get something working for FSFS because this is
much more likely to get done in time for 1.8. If this turns out to
be impossible, fair enough -- that means we'll have to tackle a new FS
design to fix this problem. But I am not yet convinced that it is impossible.
