    This will mean that UNIONFS and NULLFS will not work in HEAD for
    a week or two.  Those people using these filesystems should be sure to
    run DragonFly_Stable kernels rather then HEAD for the next ~2 weeks.
Wouldn't UNIONFS and NULLFS be just as suited to being implemented in 
userland as any filesystem?

I anticipated some daemon vaguely akin to amd which handles requests to 
union and null mounted filesystems.  And portalfs, etc, etc.  Any 
filesystem that is more-or-less a redirection service.

If the user VFS API was ready you might also get more filesystem 
developers.  Or lower quality filesystem developers.  Or a free set of 
steak knives.
