Hey, I expect others to do things in their tree, and I live by the same
rules: I do my stuff openly in my tree.

The Apache people actually seemed quite interested in sendfile. Of course,
that was before apache seemed to stop worrying about trying to beat
others at performance (rightly or wrongly - I think they are right
from a pragmatic viewpoint, and wrong from a PR one).

And hey, the same way I encourage others to experiment openly with their
trees, I experiment with mine.
