We certainly could. I just wonder if this patch is useful on an ongoing
basis. I wrote it to validate my work on lazy freeing of shadow pages -
which is why I included it - but I'm not sure it has much ongoing value
beyond demonstrating that the freeing code works.

If we think it's worth holding on to this patch, I can certainly adjust
the paths.

Regards,
Daniel
