Yeah, but if anyone is interested into such a thing: I have done it
already, the Unix/OS X VM plugin for POSIX file-handling ;-) I wrote
it to reduce the number of layers and to track down problems we had
with OmniBase. At least it solves the #size problem and provides some
low-level primitives for locking. It is designed and optimized towards
OmniBase, but I could also work on its own, I guess.
