Thinking further about this: How about a way to change the underlying 
memory manager from RAM to a MMF? If I could specify which memory 
allocator to use when creating a class, The class could be created in a 
MMF (which is mapped to main memory and hence there should be no 
difference in speed) and all references would go to the MMF as well.

With such a low-level switch persistent data-structures would be for 
free. The memory allocator could be optimized to yield minimal MMF.

Any comments?
