:hi matt and all,

    Well, Poul presented an overview of Geom at the Dev Summit.  The 
    abstraction is reasonable but DragonFly's own messaging interface is far
    more advanced.  It might be possible to present a compatible API but
    we aren't going to be able to do anything for at least 6 months
    because we have to messagize VFS and asynchronize the messaging in DEV
