I am implementing persistent memory for Linux (i.e. like virtual memory, but
non-volatile, with ACID transaction semantics). Perhaps something will be
working sometime in 2002.

It is my hope that persistent memory will serve as a foundation for making
functional data structures persistent, eventually leading towards a functional
operating system.
