Tried that. Performance headed south like a cat with its tail on fire. We
didn't bother quantifying, it was just that hideous.
(You know, us northern-hemisphere people always use "south" as a "down"
direction. Is it different for people in the southern hemisphere? :) )
There's just too many _other_ little things running around a normal system for
which NOT having primarycache is just too painful to contemplate (even with
L2ARC) that, while I can envisage situations where one might want to do that,
they're very very few and far between.
