Well, last I heard, some of the Namesys employees were looking to continue
development. It might even get more support - Hand Reiser was infamous for
being abrasive and difficult to work with, and had some pretty onerous

We'll see - IIRC, Slackware defaulted to reiserfs, but Red Hat-based distros
treat it as a bastard child.
