Alternatively, you might not have spent enough time looking at the OpenBSD VM, which has its own share of special cases ;)
Every VM I've seen (and yes, I have looked at all the BSDs, XNU, Mach and others) are chock full of special case handling. Take a look at vm/vm_glue.c next time you're in FreeBSD land...
Yes, the swap token thrashing prevention code has a few corner cases, but it doesn't require anywhere near the number of magic constants that traditional Unix and BSD memory scheduling algorithms require.
