    Well, the current download is from 2008, so it's probably been idle for the past 2 years. I can certainly see the utility of such a file system. Of course, there is AFS (Andrew File System) which also does versioning.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.

    I don't personally use them (although zfs is installed w/ Solaris x86 by default - so I guess I do), but my wife uses AFS at FermiLab.
