Fine, it could be great if, apart of working together which would be a
pleasure for me, creating a work team for this.

I've read the tech. specs. of JFFS2 as David recommended to me, so, we
should separate two possible solutions:

	- use a new node type(s)     <- what David likes (& wants AFAIK)
	- use reiserfs style-storage <- what I have done partially

We need also a little road-map and to-do list to know what exactly needs
to be done in each code "section" to achieve our goal.

Just let me know when do you want to start, I would like to talk with
you at #mtd in irc.freenode.org if it's possible.

Thanks in advance and for your interest,
