- not a good option, since it's not part of the core OS?
- or, alternatively, laptop users who use Hammer are assumed to know
what they are doing
Another solution would be to do a cleanup every N mounts (similar to
the tunable file system option for ext2/3 on Linux that would run fsck
every N mounts); but this would not work for laptop users who just
suspend their machines at night.
