By calling somebody a backseat coder - well i don't mean it as an insult. 
I just mean it as in "dont comment if you're not knowledgeable about the 
topic" (i.e. EFS or tar) - I'm sure the people who have hacked on EFS and 
tar have more knowledge than you or I. And as long as there are tools to 
read/write to EFS I don't see what the problem is. (As long as its fast 
and efficient). 

Anyway, my apologies for calling you a "backseat coder" if you take 
offense at it.

Yes - but asking questions that have /just/ been awnsered will not get a 
response from the usual people. I've just been /browsing/ the thread 
lightly and your question was /just/ discussed and awnsered. I figure 
that if you wish to comment on the topic, then read the whole thread first.

Like I said, my apologies. I didn't mean it in an "offensive" way - I 
just noticed a lot of people bashing EFS without being very knowledgeable 
about it (i.e. "its new", "why not <X>", "why not <Y>") and i fear that 
many of these people have not looked at EFS - They just want something 
that they know/understand rather than something new.

Again sorry :)
