You may want to call that AmigaFS rather than AFS; that caused a real
double-take at first, since AFS is case-sensitive.  :)  (AFS being the
Andrew File System, a very widely used distributed file system product by
the Transarc division of IBM, recently released as open source.)

I'd suggest using less ambiguous terms for both, but AFS has always just
been AFS (even down to the canonical mount point being /afs).
