I know what swapd and swap priorities are (I think I do, OS thing and how
partitions are used). I am speaking about something that "owns" a partition
(or filesystem or warp generator) and accepts request from apps like "hey
you! move this are of my RAM to your storage" and "quickly! give me back the
data I give you some minutes ago".
So Gimp could use it, instead of using OS things (swap or filesystem). I
guess everybody will agree that a partition handled by one process (with
high performance in mind) is a good solution.
Well, now you can point why my suggestion is 100% wrong. ;]

Really? Maybe time to get a book about DB implementation. Damn, so many
thing, so few time.
