Please add the xfsdump package to CURRENT, a necessity for full xfs-support under Arch. The xfsdump package contains important tools in addition to xfsprogs (which is in CURRENT), for example the defrag tool. The defrag tool is very important for a satisfactorily functioning xfs-filesystem as xfs has a tendency to be extremely fragmented (up to 99%!). The reason I'm requesting this to be added to CURRENT rather than EXTRA is simply because of consistency with xfsprogs.
