Ok. Perhaps it is interesting to discuss journaling.  AFAIK Linux has
some journaling code shared by all filesystems.  Perhaps it is useful
to extend libdiskfs with such feature.  Perhaps you can share some
code for removing the 2GB limit too?  I think it is a waste of time to
fix the limit for every individual filesystem.

I'm even thinking about how easy it is, if this is really general, to
add journaling and ordered writes to filesystems that don't even
officially support this by just having a nice journaling
layer. (This is just a random thought that is possibly quite useless).
