Hello Jeff ,
indeed it would be great if cowloop would support UML cowfiles.
Since i didn`t find a reference from uml mailinglist to cowloop, i thought it would be good to announce it here.
Did anyone try it yet ?
I had some problem with cowloop when using reiserfs - and the current maintainer seems quite busy.
