If softupdates suites your needs why not just use that? :-) Is
performance adequate with softupdates? I have a 103 GB db on FreeBSD
7.0 and softupdates and it has survived one unplanned stop when we had
a power-outage lasting some hours.
When lenity and cruelty play for a kingdom,
the gentler gamester is the soonest winner.
