Like I said, Dean mumbled something about flushes. Natch, if you have
threads, the approach is different to if you don't. I suppose the Big
Question is whether we are interested in implementing layered I/O for
non-threaded environments.

BTW, Alexei said some stuff about caching in between layers, which I
seem to have mislaid. Let me take this opportunity to say that sounds
cool and he should pursue it! I have some stuff to say about databases,
but I'll wait until I've drunk less.
