Hi Warner, It's nice to read from you.

Milo 0.27 is already a full sources release, or did I made a mistake
in packaging it ?

Anyway Ralf proposed last week - It was not on the list - that Milo should
pass all the ARC config tree - in whatever form - to the kernel, so it
can end up in, say /proc/arc. So Milo would have a complete ARC tree
walker and by making it available from Pandora's prompt it will implement
one of these feature you're talking about.

And well for the others, as long as they are thrown in Pandora and not
in Milo - to keep it small - ... why not ? Let's have Pandora suffer from a
feeping creaturism :)
