In general I have no problem with this.  Switching to
memory_object_ready means that you have to commit to using the new
interface entirely, and IIRC there are several changes to worry
about.  I don't think any of them affect the default pager.

But I would feel happier if you compiled this and did some major
stress-testing of it first.
