Yeah, Rome wasn't built in a day :-) What I think is important is
to get this started. Once we have the basic infrastructure in place,
even if it's just a skeleton, it will be easy to make it do more.

That's the difference to "oh, let's hack this into kernel, because
writing something in user space would take a day of work".

Well, it seems that Carsten is writing it, and it also seems that
he and I agree on the basic principles. You can't imagine what
satisfaction I draw from watching people doing what I think is
right, without me having to do it myself ;-)
