I agree. Take it to linux-fsdevel. Outline the design and the reason for
it, and show that you're keeping it as unintrusive as it can be.

I don't think you have to have a complete and perfect implementation

There's not a lot of point in completely finishing it before we show
anything, if we're going to have to make significant changes.
