Ah, as have I [1].. and they seem to have gotten about as far as I have,
which means almost there but not quite [2] :-)

The most interesting case is file maps and they simply ignored those.
While I appreciate that from an academic pov, -- they can still write a
paper on the other interesting bits -- I don't really like it from a
practical point.
