NTFS-3G: Full Read-Write Open Source Linux NTFS Driver using FUSE

I was quite surprised when a developer created a full
read/write NTFS driver using FUSE. It's said to being
twice faster than EXT3 and 20%-50% faster than
commercial competitors, and he is using an userland
layer (FUSE).

Here is an extract from OSnews:
"Preliminary benchmarks show that the still
unoptimized driver already sometimes twice as fast as
ext3 and 20-50 faster than the commercial Paragon
NTFS. Interestingly Captive NTFS, which uses the
native Windows NTFS driver, fails all benchmarks with
file loss."
(from http://www.osnews.com/comment.php?news_id=15196)

Here is the official announcement:

Could this be useful for DragonFly too? They are using
FUSE, but I'm not sure about the license compatibility
(it uses the GPL license).
