I don't think I quite got it - I'll probably wait and see what he means by
"a new APR API for accessing shmem that treats it as a fixed-length
hash/DBM".. I'd be willing to help if required.

I do share your concerns regarding the overhead.. But, I still feel that
freelist management should be a part of any shared memory management. If
there's no such policy, then we should just not coin the word *management* -
because there's no management being done here.
