There shouldn't be any serious problems.  In the end, things may still
break and you may not get any support.  This is open source, there is
no vendor you could sue.  But I'd be more concerned about staying with
jffs(1) than converting.


Data dominates. If you've chosen the right data structures and organized
things well, the algorithms will almost always be self-evident. Data
structures, not algorithms, are central to programming.
