I agree his crime is terrible, and I agree he should be punished severely.

But I disagree that he's replaceable. Some people are just more talented than others at certain things. Reiser happens to be particularly talented at designing and implementing filesystems. It's named after him for a reason...

But that certainly doesn't mean he should get off lightly.
