Is it STAFFS or STAVES now ? Decide ! I don't want there to be an edit war !
But I've learned that deep down, there's a light that never goes out! • TroisNyxÉtienne

"Staves" is the correct pluralization, and always has been. "Staffs" is a recently created word which only applies to "staff" as in "School staff" or "Medical staff" - the group of people, not the physical object.
I've always felt it was spelt with -ves. By the way isn't "staff" in that context supposed to be singular and never plural ?
