| Well, I still have the hope that someone takes a shot at evaluating its
| performance on the Neo. To ease that, I have turned this back on in OE.

I also hope users decide to do random things not necessarily based on
what we decide we like (good example is the fully working Debian that
came out of nowhere).  But in this case, the future for us is definitely
SD Card based.  jffs2 and yaffs are just more complicated
poorly-understood workarounds for the horror that is raw NAND.  In the
SD Card world, we treat it just like a HDD, with familiar and stable
ext3, and the capability to always be able to expose it / fix it on
another host.  In that sense I think for us jffs2 / yaffs whatever are
going backwards towards "special pleading" embedded status when we are
going forwards towards being a reduced formfactor laptop.
