Translation: We'd like to dangle a carrot in front of Linux users in hopes
they'll try out this feature and possibly get interested in switching to
Solaris because of it. Don't hold your breath on us actually shipping
anything. But we didn't open source Solaris due to competitive pressure from
AIX or HPUX users, so they don't even get the carrot.
