Then I think "the Incompatible Timesharing System's filesystem had this back in the late 1960s, so this is just technology coming full circle. Welcome back."

I'm finding it curious that people are suddenly excited about security-capability-based microkernel design now that Google's working on a kernel based on this, though I've also seen the Hurd being made fun of for a long time ago for those same ideas. (Well, probably the Hurd has been made fun of for longer for not being stable, but! It would be useful if people would see this as an opportunity to take the Hurd more seriously now. It does run!)

I plan to tune in and hear what they have to say. I expect mostly-finished stuff, since their milestone for the codec specification and reference implementation is May. Daala/NetVC/whatever-it-ends-up-being-called is getting close...
