	Urgh; wow, synching the whole system (though fsync tends to end up
doing this on ext2/ext3 anyway) is also a bit extreme, certainly
inelegant and osl (luckily) has no abstraction for that ;-)

	Well - an open-fsync-close triplet, is not as bad as a 20second
regression on first-start from the bus-load of gross-ness that is done
in desktop's setup / migration code ;-)

	Sure - the only problem is is trying to push the semantic: 'we want to
fsync' through the multiple layers of abstractions ;-) Stephan - for
example, can we inherit UNO structs and be sure the new version is
correctly co-erced into the old one in other places ? [ that might be
helpful ]
