Having a respectful conversation entails reading what other people write

Get a copy of Advanced Programming in the UNIX Environment by the late W.

I haven't looked at your code -- and I am certainly not going to -- but,
pray tell, what happens if you have a reader and a writer for a key and
the writer writes a value bigger than, say, 4K?
(or whatever the limit is on the size of writes that are guaranteed to be
atomic, as long as they go to real files on real file systems without the
C run-time library getting in the way)
So much for "thread-safety" (another buzzword you managed to squeeze in).
