This definitely has its benefits but then again there are situations
where you don't want to have any moving parts in a computer (e.g. in
a very dusty environment or a high availability system or if you just
want to have a _quiet_ office ;-) ). And of course there are those
cheap and very cute SPARCstation SLC and ELC where you don't want to
destroy their grace and quietness with a shoebox doing the 'whirrrrr'
sound. ;-)

So I would be happy to see NFS swap support but I can go on without
