SFS on top Unionfs layer
Why does the SFS loading order matter? What practical difference does it make to the user if a particular SFS is loaded on the top Unionfs layer or not?

Re SFS layer order
The order won't concern most people.

It may be that on one layer you have same-named and same-location files as on a lower layer, in which case the higher ones only will be seen.
It might want to order the layers such that later files, say libraries, are on a higher layer.

Compressed Swap
Barry, have you heard of zram? It's a very nice kernel module that I use myself on RAM-challenged machines.

It improves performance and I think it could be a nice feature for Puppy - Slax and other distros already have it.

You can see an example here.

Re zram
Yes, it looks like a good idea.
