That was a different matter; EVMS vs LVM. And even there Linus was and 
is wrong. The Linux implementation is "good enough" and linux as an OS 
can probably live with it. It is just a little sad that "good enough" is 
enough sometimes, esp. when the alternative is not harder to implement.

But this is getting pretty off-topic.

And if it turns out that there is a God, I don't believe that he is 
evil. The worst that can be said is that he's an underachiever.
