    Hmmmm, now that I think of it, we always need to be able
    to guarantee _both_ 2) and 3). For different allocators
    and interrupts. I guess the only long-term solution is
    to have real memory reservation strategies, like the one
    in Ben's patch.

    That might be a 2.5 thing, though ... Ben?

    However, without VM there's truly nothing to lose...
