like, um, seconded. Please.
I'm very curious to learn of a "VM2" effort. (Sadly, I spend more time nowadays
with my nose stuck into Cisco kit than into Solaris - well, not sadly, they're
both interesting - but I'm out of touch with much of what's going on in Solaris
world anymore.) It makes sense though. And perhaps it's well overdue. The basic
notions of the VM subsys haven't changed in what, 15 years?
