* If the CPU is in fact a 68000/10 then the only type of 'swaping' is full
* task swapping, ie no paging. I don't know if BSD was ever envisioned for
* a purely swaping environment. However, SYSV-mumble-foo, and V6 un*x were.
Didn't the *very* first release of BSD swap full images as well as do
paging? I thought that BSD was capable of complete swaps as far forward
as 4.1 (but my memory may be failing me -- I was a newbie just at the
release point of 4.2. Man, talk about a slow system!).
How much would it take to decouple the paging code as a compile-time
option (dependent on config and, of course, the CPU type)?
