Still lots of testing to do, but the initial incoming peformance is 
nothing to write home about: 5 arts/sec with timehash/tradindexed.  I 
want to make it all work before worrying about anything resembling real

creation in combo with the timehash for most of that.  The disk 
blinkenlights tend to agree.  nnrpd is nice and zippy, though, and i'm 
optimistic that CNFS will help lots, once I get around to it.

The nnrpd crashing problem was from the setproctitle stuff, not very 

For expire, I think I'll end up living for now with history files being 
unavailable for a moment each night while things get swapped.  Oh well.

I'll shove diffs or a tarball out somewhere, soonish, for others to play 
with, once I've seen the thing stay up and not hang or explodiate for a
