Agreed, so could it be added as a port, or can you license the code
with the BSD license and post a link to it?

To be honest, from what you say about your application, it sounds
beneficial. I personally would be willing to try it on one of the
boxes that I boot from removable USB disk and run the entire OS in
memory, with no hard disk whatsoever.

Understood. Can you provide a compilable product with reasonable
documentation that can be tested?
