That's because there is no other possibility. Sooner or later you have
to do a snapshot, and somehow you have to save it. You're not going to
get a new solution, just one that do those basic things in new and
I'm perfectly willing to think through some alternate approach if you
suggest something or prod my thinking in a new direction, but I'm afraid
I just can't see right now how we can achieve what you're after.
