2.4+some more ideas related to ventivac:
2.6+- a venti write buffering proxy. it should return the score written immediately, and write it to a remote server in the background. this makes synchronous writes on a low-latency link look fast. a sync would wait until all writes have finished, so there is no risk of losing data.
2.7+- a better cache replacement algorithm for vcache could be implemented. more testing of the performance of the current clock algorithm should be done first.
2.8+- a venti-proxy that does read-ahead on the raw venti blocks. 9p-level read-ahead will help for e.g. vacfs. for vacput with writing compared to an existing venti archive, a 9p-level read-ahead proxy would not help, but this would. questionable whether it's worth the trouble though.
