    Shouldn't oft-used files be placed closer to the middle? If you place
    them at the beginning of the file, it's only possible for the head-stack
    to be close to the file from the inner direction. Place them in the
    middle and it's possible for the head-stack to be close from the outer
    direction, too, which sounds like a doubling of probability. It seems
    that it's the least frequently used files that should be placed at one
    end of the disk or the other.
