                     14: Remove the residual geometry code and datastructures from FFS (keep some kind of
                     15: allocation groups but without most of what cylinder groups now have) and replace
                     16: blocks and fragments with extents, yielding a much simpler filesystem well
                     17: suited for modern disks.  The result would be useful to many operating systems
                     18: beyond just NetBSD, since UFS/FFS is used in so many different kernels.
