Cool, thanks for the link :D

The comment seems a little discouraging though: "Bcache looks like
it's about ready for non critical use". That's about the same state as
btrfs or zfsonlinux is currently in (both of which I use mostly for

If you have more experience with bcache (whether good or bad) let us know.
