No, Peter Braam is the intermezzo guy, it is based on ideas he worked
out from experiences with Coda. Intermezzo is a neat little distributed
filesystem consisting of a kernel part (Presto) which works like a
filter on top of an existing ext2 filesystem, and a userspace part
(Lento) which is written in ___perl___. And believe it or not, it is
actually reasonably fast and has some amazing functionality.

See for more, the mailing lists there look even
quieter than the Coda lists.


Who believes filesystems like intermezzo should be written in a more
appropriate language than perl, f.i. python ;)
