I was just talking about 'sd' and 'wd'. I think they could be named
the same, 'da' or 'hd' or all 'sd', or something. I can understand that
having the same name for a ramdisk as for a harddisk is undesirable.

Anyway, I think it's most important that wedges get implemented. In
the meantime we can have long, religious arguments about device
naming and perhaps even get to a conclusion once wedges are
finished :-) (anybody who wants to step up to work on it, btw?)
