I'd count filesystem journaling as complete (modulo the patch to
implement jscan -o which is lurking in submit@). I've been using it for
several months now to mirror data that I care about between two boxes.
Checkpointing and varsyms are also user visible and complete.
Much has happened under the hood without becoming user visible
which is in itself impressive.
