   There are also alternate cooldown strategies that might help newfs-like
   access patterns and wouldn't harm sequential writes, but I don't know
   how they'd do with the many-small-files cases.  This might be worth
   experimenting with, now that I think about it.

i'd like to make it clear that i am was not trying to say that the
behaviour with newfs is a problem, just something i observed.  if
it can be mitigated that would be great, but i don't think this is
a problem of any major sort...
