My 'scenario' is this: I have two hunks of memory, but the other one is
so much slower (and smaller) than the other one that merging is not a
very good solution. I'd like to use this smaller memory hunk as a swap
to be used before on-disk swaps. (I'd need to write a device handler
similar to RAD: on the Amiga side for it of course...)
