I am asking some questions from the user's point of view. Sorry if it
is covered in the document, I may have overlooked it.

So, the filesystem is going to be the volume manager as well (like in
ZFS), right? Will filesystems strictly be bounded to 'partitions' or

Another question: will this mirroring capability allow for an FS-level
RAID like RAIDZ? I wonder whether the filesystem can be extended so it
can achieve this.

Disclaimer: yes, those are ZFS features which I am asking about, bot
no, I don't want a cluster-friendly ZFS ripoff, just asking.
