The problem with a deniable filesystem is that not only can you deny it
exists, you also can't prove it doesn't. 

Given that the presence of software-for-deniable-encryption on a machine
is decent evidence (in the Bayesian sense) for presence of a deniable
filesystem, this is a problem: not being able to prove you don't know
something when someone thinks you do is hard, as many people in
Guantanamo might attest.

Mathematics is the supreme nostalgia of our time.
