    This isn't really realistic. The information is retrieved based on the
    PFN using lseek+read from a file descriptor. How is the read supposed
    to work in case the record returned is not of a fixed size? Aside,
    potentially a lot of these records are to be read and using ASCII
    strings will significantly slow things down.

    If you have a concrete proposal please go ahead and propose it.
