    I don't think most kernel developers are likely to favor an approach
    which smashes a bunch of unrelated data together. Linux syscall
    overhead is incredibly low, so I don't see it being much of a problem.
    On the other hand, a simple syscall which smashes together a bunch of
    related data would not be that big of an issue either. Let's wait for
    Namesys to tinker and come back with a new patch before commenting

    Somone asked me why I work on this free (
    software stuff and not get a real job. Charles Shultz had the best

    "Why do musicians compose symphonies and poets write poems? They do it
    because life wouldn't have any meaning for them if they didn't.
    That's why
    I draw cartoons. It's my life."
