Re GPL compliance:
From the way http://www.zipitwireless.com/linux.html
is written, they
claim to not have patched it, someone should ask them to post the
".config" file they used to compile it.
For gmailfs on a ZipIt, that'd only be good for people that can't get
a SSHFS or ftpfs (dunno if that exists...) or similar internet
accessable file systems. Personally I'm wondering what would be most
efficient in that area, if it's addititional programs encryption
doesn't really matter. Well, except for finding buffer overflows?
