First, s/OWL/Owl/ ;-)

Then, the Owl userland already supports the international (crypto)
kernel patch, in mount and losetup commands.

So we may add support for additional filesystems as well.  I don't
think I will invest much of my time into this as I have no experience
using the modern Linux filesystems.  Maybe kad@owl will do that.
Maybe some of the users will provide exact suggestions on what needs
to be changed in the userland to support what filesystem and why.
Maybe they will also get involved in working on the patches and
possible additional packages that may be needed to support the new
filesystems. ;-)

What I am not going to do is take responsibility for much optional
kernel code which is obviously security- and reliability-critical, but
itself doesn't provide needed security-related functionality.  There's
already too much code to review and fix in the system.
