    I am still refining the filesystem spec.  The greatest weakness in it
    right now is where to store large indexes (primarily for directories).
What would the relationship between system memory size and segment size 
be?  From your description, it sounds like you accumulate transactions 
until a segment is "full", and then push the segment to disk.  So a 
machine with limited memory resources would be forced to push segment 
more often.
