If the performance advantage is clear many will contribute the niceties !

Is the code 64-bit ready ? What was limiting the scalability to 1 million
rather than say 100 million ?

I have to study shmem but I think the persistent STL bits are more suited
as the base library for other database libraries like RML and not as part of

a shared memory library.

It's only an organizational issue. My feeling is that if the persistent
containers are
developed by people working on database issues it will get more focus on
and be more suited for real-world solutions.
