(Running the risk of not following my own advice and avoiding discussion).
Nevertheless it would be nice to have a more detail rationale from the Red Hat
legal counsel about exactly how NTFS is in and FAT than the note there now:

"Microsoft has a number of patents around NTFS. Because of these issues, counsel
feels that adding ntfs support runs the risk of significantly endangering the
project."

Anyway last post from me (will followup on the mailing list).
