In reply to Comment #1 I was hoping that instead of an outright "no this wont
work" people would be willing to re-visit the possibility of the inclusion of
ntfs support. 

Also remember mono was also listed under forbidden items until recently so I do
not consider it a be all and end all. I am of course aware of third party repos
such as livna and the excellent job they do etc etc. however my hope is that by
NOT shipping with core and instead using a kernel module in extras we could
compromise a little.

Remember, the code is not a wrapper for some ntfs driver, it is GPL'd and
written and available due to the damn hard work of some fine developers. If we
are to reject inclusion of NTFS support in the kernel then by dint we should
also be removing FAT support (see recently upheld patents on this baby) and
SAMBA should also give us cause for concern as it was developed using similar
methods.

Regards
Chris
