I'm fully with Waiman here. There are people wanting to use it and
the part most people isn't controversial at all. I don't see what'd
be gained by further delaying the whole thing. If the first level
partition thing isn't acceptable to everyone, we can even strip down
further. We can get .cpus and .mems merged first, which is what most
people want anyway.
