Should DragonflyBSD import FreeBSD's UFS2?

I’ll counter and say I have storage servers on vultr running DragonFly with HAMMER2 with 1GB RAM and they’ve been working fine for years. The only time they have any issues is when recompiling kernel and world and for that just make sure you either build elsewhere and copy over the artifacts, there is a user here that automated that, or give yourself a couple GB of swap and it’ll be fine.

I have to stick with UFS but I found the UFS1 on DragonflyBSD is not have good performance nor reliable. I have to roll back my DragonflyBSD installation many times due to UFS1 problem. Should DragonflyBSD import FreeBSD's UFS2?
