Description: '
[bvm': I think it is not too hard to make be able to do'
but I have never heard any strong wishes for it.  Speak up if there are.]'
We have run into the situation down here where a customer wants Lisp, Loops (in the form of a sysout), and Smalltalk on the same machine.  If we deliver a machine with this configuration, there is no room left for user files.'
If we could avoid having the second vmem file on the second partition, it would be nice in those situations.'
How hard is "not too hard"?  I would not put this high on the list of priorities, but it would be real handy for those people without a fileserver.  10000 to 12000 pages is a lot of extra room.'
NPRDC and Honeywell in Minnesota have also expressed this wish.   '

I''d guess Priority': "Unlikely". We are unlikely to do any major enhancements that only affect Dolphin users.'
