It might indeed be nice to influence the interfaces of FUSE to possibly
make it more efficient with Coda and still avoid the need to maintain
the corresponding code for each platform.

Of course if FUSE gives wider platform support but inherently worse
performance, then we might desire to preserve the platform-specific
"efficient" kernel code. I would expect though that this code will not
get enough attention and will just fade into oblivion as kernels change.
This has already happened with Solaris and MacOSX - despite the lack of
any alternatives.
