Journaling layer update - any really good programmer want to start working on the userland journal scanning utility ? You need to have a LOT of time available!

    I think we'd want something like an /etc/mountctl.conf, yes.  I'd integrate
    it into /etc/fstab if I could, but /etc/fstab is already too full of junk.

How about creating:

'/etc/jfstab' - or '/etc/dfjstab'

. ..specifically, and only, for the purpose of managing this 

Keeps it out of potential confusion with non-DragonFly tools...
