We track all file accesses from the very beginning, so part of this is
completely solved.  The ordering so far has been -10000, then -9999,
etc, but that can easily be changed.  I tried twiddling it around, but
without big changes.  I'll do better measurements once we actually
have the live cds in Edgy working.
