	Originally it looked like a breath of fresh air compared to
FreeBSD-5 which was looking pretty scary. The clustering goals were (and
still are) also attractive to me. Hammer wasn't around when I got
interested in DragonFly - but it's certainly a good reason to stick around.
I look forward to the day when my main data store is held on two machines
using multi-master Hammer mirrors and I can take down either one without
bothering anything that is using the data.
