Although I can see an appeal to relaxing the in-order
constraint for IO from different processes
Well, given that Unix applications often create lots of processes that
interact in lots of interesting ways (think shell scripts), I think
it's just too hard to find out when two operations are independent. I
also don't think that this relaxation buys much if the in-order
constraint is implemented efficiently (by combining a large batch of
operations and commiting them together).
