Some of the SGI folks were very keen on us getting XFS into FC1, but
time constraints meant it didn't happen. If upstream maintainers of
various filesystems were happy to get involved and pick up any
JFS/XFS/Reiserfs/etc.. bugs from bugzilla and work on them, I'd feel a
lot more comfortable about saying "sure, move them all to supported,
they'll be supported by xxx vendor com".

The 'unsupported' here means basically we don't have the resources
to dig into the guts of these filesystems if something goes horribly
wrong.
