FWIW, I think there's a configuration option to make the node keep its datastore in RAM without having to use a ramdisk. I can't remember exactly where it is now (I'm not at my node) but that might be worth looking at - it may be more efficient than going through the filesystem layer. Of course, it might be worth considering (perhaps for a "version 2" after you've got the basic stuff working) having an option to export (and, obviously, re-import) an encrypted archive of the "vital statistics" (node keys, etc - optionally the datastore, although that would require it to be stored in a filesystem so the archiver can access it) so that if the operator needs to reboot for administrative reasons, he doesn't have to restart his node from scratch. Obviously, he'd need to wipe/destroy the backup media afterwards so as not to defeat the original purpose of having a RAM-based node...
