OK, I'll start investigating an OOB-less YAFFS and give that a priority 
depending on the amount of interest. Hint to everyone: If this sounds 
interesting, respond (on or off list), especially if you'd like to be 
involved in some way.

I think a final solution that exploits OOB if it is available but will work if 
OOB is not available would be best. That way:
1) People could use YAFFS on a wider variety of flash types (inc OneNAND etc) 
without using OOB.
2) If you have OOB, and drivers set up to use it, and wish to use it, then you 
will likely get some performance gains due to page alignment etc.
