well the best, or most interesting part IMO, is the fact that this is GEOM
class.  meaning it is implemented below the file system layer.  So we
should be able to use this to enable journaling for other filesystems we
may import later (or have already imported but do not have journaling
enabeled i.e. ext3).

but yes, very exciting stuff ;)
