I wish someone in FreeBSD-land would get around to doing that sort of
thing. Regardless of filesystem.  They claim the USB-removal panics
are fixed in 8-CURRENT, but at least one person claimed this month
that he still sees the panics; I'm not sure I want to experiment.

Anyway, I'm seriously considering DragonFly for a new machine, which I 
think I should get in around a month.  Will at least give the livecd 
a spin.
