Ignore distributed filesystems for a moment.  Is there any application 
for which want to allow your computer to silently corrupt your data?  My 
email archive consists of messages in individual files (Maildir), and 
I'd like to ensure that bits don't flip.  I'd like to ensure that bits 
don't flip in my music files, creating noise during playback (one 
corrupt sample could end up being pure noise played back at maximum volume).

Even for very basic, relatively unimportant purposes, I want my data in 
a reliable filesystem.
