It's a good name to take, but...
- I think it'll cause some people to confuse the behavior of your pCIFS
  with that of pNFS.
- As I mentioned, Peter Bram did put out something (a proposal, at least)
  using the name pCIFS.  People in the pNFS community are using the name
  pCIFS when they talk about something that'd behave like pNFS.

As with the "Samba" name, my guess is that something better will come along.

I hope to do so.  It's all about available time and (at the moment)
customers.  :)
