If the V1.2 release is going to be significantly delayed by these issues, 
    and if these issues are also in xfs v1.1 
    and the QA load is not too high, 
then maybe you could release a xfs 1.1.1 or some such and just list those 
issues in the release notes.

(I almost feel like I'm writing code with the above overly complex sentence 
structure.)

I know SuSE uses the aa kernels and probably other distributions as well.  And 
of course the Redhat ISO's you have are xfs 1.1.

That likely means you have 1000s or 10s of 1000s of xfs 1.1 users that are not 
getting the benefit of the last several months of improvements.

Unfortunately, I'm one :(

I guess the real issue is that I'm just going to have to make the next step of 
working with the CVS code.  (Not today, but maybe soon.)
