Will DragonFly BSD be working to port or otherwise incorporate a 
high-performance file system?  This would be imperative in a 
high-availability clustering solution.    I doubt, however, that Veritas 
will port VxFS to FreeBSD; I think the Linux port alone was to ride out 
the market wave.  I could be wrong.
