I am very interested in using your library and I hope is included in Boost
Some comments I have related to what has been discussed in this thread:
* It should be clearly stated in the docs that the performance gain is by
using MMF (not RAF) which was not clear when I looked at the docs
* Concurrent access - I think this is a key feature. Supporting regular
files will be good for this as you can support easily concurrent access via
locking at the expense of performance
* Large file support - A practical approach to this would be to limit the
support to 64-bit systems, which are starting to be very common and in which
you don't have mmap issues. Would this be a good idea ?
* Do you also plan to support what's described in Yao's paper "efficient
locking for concurrent operations on b-trees"
