    I've not reached any final conclusions on the VM - there are things that
    Rik's VM shows up that look like the VM algorithm is right but it triggers
    other stuff, and there are a couple of hackish bits left in still.

    Smart is often good - especially given how slow disk seeks are. But smart is
    not always best for any algorithm.
