That's the concept in a nutshell. In addition to all of that the data
being journaled will have a number of options... e.g. the journaling
data stream could be a simple non-reversable stream (a 'replay' stream),
or a fully reversable stream (the ability to 'move' the regenerated
filesystem forwards or backwards in time simply by playing the journaling
stream forwards or backwards), etc etc. It is going to be a *VERY*
