mycroftiv has fixes for fossil/venti that also work on 9front, it's
just that nobody has stepped up to provide this in mainline 9front or
support it (and accept the responsibility).

i prefer this over dumping it in and then generating all kinds of bug
reports from users.

even having 2 default filesystems is one too many IMO and adding a
third option just makes it worse. having more options is not always
better, especially not with something so centrally important as your
central file server.
