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.
