    ISTR that SunOS 4.0 handled an NFS-mounted /dev and swap just fine some 15
    years ago? (in fact, due to performance differences between the disks on a Sun3/
    2xx server and the shoebox disk on a 3/50, you could page faster over the net
    than to a local /dev/swap).

    So it's more a case of "we have decided to do it differently" than "that's so nuts
    that it shouldn't be expected to work"....
