Great idea, except that:
a) kernels since 1.15.6b are unstable here, 1.15.7b being the
worst kernel I've tested so far.
(yes, even 1.15.6 is unstable - I currently use my own 1.15.5
compiled _with_ the shutdown workaround enabled, instead)
b) Julian's new beta does not implement audio CD
(putting everything inside the XFS _is_ a good idea, though -
relying upon MetaDOS was not so great, IMHO)
c) FATFS does not cooprate well with too many applications; its
incompatibility with TOSFS often creates problems; too many
applications cannot find their RSC or open files on a FATFS,
but can on TOSFS.
Because of this, TOSFS and SPIN! 0.34 are still needed.
