Roadmap 2019

I would like to second the journaling filesystem request, but add it toward
the end of the priority list, considering its difficulty (which seems
rather high, considering the lack of cross-platform support for most
filesystems). My own research into this suggests that most filesystem
drivers are integrated more tightly into the OS kernels than ideal. FUSE
seems like it should solve this issue, except there don't seem to be any
complete, actively-maintained FUSE implementations for mainstream
journaling filesystems. That said, ext4 support would definitely be nice.
