If the long-term storage medium obtains all of the speed advantages of traditional short-term RAM, I'd think all one would need to do is dedicate X number of gigabytes of long-term storage space to act permanently as virtual memory (something I already do with my hard drives to complement my RAM loadout) and one would be all set. The problem would be in upgrading the damn thing, though; if the long-term and short-term storage are consolidated, one can't upgrade the latter without ripping out the former, too. all of which is beyond the scope of the article and my own knowledge, of course, but...
