This is the only way currently we can afford to assure best reliability, 
which is the highest priority for the project. If a file system driver fails
then a reboot, package upgrade/downgrade, or fsck won't guarantee users will
get back their lost data. We prefer to avoid such scenarios, or if they still 
happen then solve them as fast as possible.

We have worked hard not to make the above mandatory, so if one prefers to use 
--with-fuse=external and take the responsibility then he is able to do so.

The reliability problems weren't only coming from the old FUSE versions. 
That's a pretty easy case: upgrade. But they were also coming from the 
always current one and potentially from future ones untested with the driver.

The main point is that we can guarantee now at least this 


independently of the used old, current or future FUSE user space.
