DaveJ doesn't want the bugreports. Are you volunteering to take them?

There are two ntfs implementations. One is old, crufted, and poorly
maintained. The other one is actively maintained, with lots of new
releases, bugfixes, and performance improvements.

Which one should Fedora put forward for users, who don't know better?
Both?

Dave asked me for my opinion, and I said that we shouldn't ship
something that's not recommended by one of its authors, and has no real
maintenance upstream:

http://ntfs-3g.org/about.html

IMHO, this the same reason we don't enable every possible module in the
kernel. Feel free to plead your case to Dave Jones if you'd like.
