    Jeff, I know that it sounds extremely snub, but get a different
    background, please. Make yourself aware of the existence of other Unices.
    Page cache similar to the new Linux one was there in *BSD for years. You
    are trying to map the things on NT design. Bad idea, since semantics is
    different. You know, UNIX had evolved since 70s and personally I trust the
    taste of UNIX developers community more than the taste of VMS folks. YMMV,
    but I'm afraid that getting a compatible piece of background might be
    useful. You are proposing the large changes in the core design and you
    didn't even care to discuss the things on fsdevel? Thank you for gift,
    but... somehow I'm not impressed by smartness of this strategy.
