    Personally speaking I think the blockmap idea may be the best way to go.
    It would be theoretically possible to immediately reuse a block that
    becomes completely free by unmapping it from the fifo (creating a 'hole'
    in the fifo) and freeing it for reuse.  One would thus not have to cycle
    the fifo to reach the block in order to reuse it.
Now combine that with 64bit block idents and you have a "quasi infinte 
FIFO" :)
