I'm ignorantly curious about the problems you're trying to address. Isn't the solution to "the firefox problem" to cache almost all data on disk? Linux seems really great about keep disk data in memory when there isn't pressure and reclaiming it when necessary. Am I misunderstanding that problem, and is what you are trying to address really a different problem?
