MessageWall doesn't return OK to sender unless it has passed the
message to the server, and the server gave it OK. But this whole
MessageWall discussion is moot, I was trying to understand effects of
overcommit allocation on MessageWall and dnscache, not the fact that
it's using memory for messages as a temporary, preallocated storage.

My hope is that since Dragonfly is such a new project, it will replace
legacy crap like init and syslog with better architected tools (to some
extent, backwards compatibility with old syslog is required, of course).
Other Unixes will see the benefits, and will also follow. Many will benefit
if that happens for many years to come. Instead, many people on this list
don't even understand the benefits of service supervision for instance.
It's sad, really. Conformity is more important than innovation, I guess.

Bullshit. I've never done that. If I have, then where?
