My issue was that they shouldn't change once defined: otherwise, how 
can you reliably use something if it adopts different behavior with 
each new release/build?

After all, we're not talking about Windows here . . . .  ;-)

It would be useful if / were always 1, for example. It looks like, with 
the inclusion of RAM and swap in the table, / might be 3.
