You're right. I'm going to drop support for all of these features, remove several modules of my libraries, and use all features that aren't supported on all of the platforms I own. I was waiting for when the first "abandon the project" post would appear.


I apologize, my sarcasm was completely unnecessary. (Don't post at 12:36am, kids.) I don't think you should abandon the project, I guess I was just echoing mhagain's thought that it really becomes a management decision as to whether it's worthwhile to support an edge case like this. I just had a hard time imagining a use case for this. That's all.

I understand where you are coming from. I just have a platform, right here, in my hands, that does not support memory mapping through the OS, and there are many other reasons that I feel that simply using memory mapping is not the right solution _for me_. It may be the best practice for other situations, but I have long thought it over, and have recently moved _away_ from a solution where everything must reside in memory. I was just hoping to find out if anyone knows a magical 3rd solution, because I generally come here when I have examined all options that I know, and have decided that none are the best; this need not always mean that there is another solution.
