Thanks for the answer. The paper on the FBSD VM rewrite was very informative and 
explained a complex issue of VM design clearly and coherently. It was enjoyable 
to read and I'll certainly be waiting for your future papers on Dragonfly.

BTW, I apologize for misspelling your name. Hope you're not holding this against 
me :)

   Well, certainly, once time permits, I will write papers on various
   DragonFly mechanisms.  The VM system is not something I intend to
   rewrite again, though certainly some modifications will eventually be
   required to make it more SMP friendly.  I'm fairly satisfied with the
   current VM infrastructure.  The only thing I really want to add to it
   is a device-layer copy-on-write feature to avoid read-fault-stall-on-write
