I've done some hacking to make filesystems build as modules.

RMS convinced me this is a bad idea, since it isn't clear
if the GPL is enforcable in this situation.

In practice, I think the plugin idea is really a band-aid
to the real problem: that parted contains file system code at all.
(It should be in libe2fsprogs & friends)

I think it's better to attack the latter problem.  Yura Umanets
has been doing some good stuff here, by experimenting with
reiserfsprogs :)


Thanks :)
