While this is a great move, it's also a little unfortunate, since it is the 
name of exactly one layered filesystem solution out of 4 existing ones 
(ignoring vaporware).

A neutral name would have been linux-layeredfs, and as long as nobody objects, 
I kindly ask you to rename it (as in creating such a ml, and silently phase 
out this one..). Given that 13 people are subscribed by now, that's hopefully 
acceptable for all participants.

BTW, all solutions organize the fs join by layering them. ;)

A layered fs user since about a decade,
Pete
