:The home-grown kernel that NetApp uses relies heavily on messaging, and I'm
:partial to its use in my own programming. Hence it seems like a potentially 
:nice solution to a number of things that have bothered me about the BSD kernel.
:For example, the way AIO is implemented has always bothered me, but I'm unlikely
:ever have time to fix it. I would certainly never have time to get the
:appropriate committers to pay attention.
:Who all is the "we" you mention?

    AIO bothers me too.  I also want to encapsulate syscalls into messages
    and implement multi-threading that way rather then with a KSE-like

    The key to doing messaging correctly is to not impose severe overheads
    for the simplest of commands, but still give every messaging command 
    the full capabilities of the messaging system if it should desire to
    fallback from whatever its optimal case is.

    We is, for the moment, me and Jeffrey Hsu.  Julian and Jordan are
    sitting in the stands rooting for us but not actively developing yet.
