I don't see the point of making major architectural changes to the MMU 
incrementally.  These features affect choices made in architecture of the 
VM subsystem.  I don't think you want to re-design and re-implement that 
code multiple times.  Better to just implement the hardware and figure 
out how to use it once, then generate the code.
