yea this is really exciting!  i think matt hit's the nail on the head
here (wow that's a bad pun) having hammer focus on his clustering goals.
I see ZFS as being a great candidate for SAN/NAS solutions - with alot
of nice features for jail's etc.

hammer seems to be addressing another very important niche - a well
written clustered filesystem.  execellent!

thanks for the heads up!
