if the epp module uses the normal io module i do not understand why ulf
wiger suggest using a ram_file_io_server.
why do we need the ability to have files?
they are handled by the file module which gives us the io device.
i admit that currently epp needs a file, and thus a ram_file_io_server.
but if a small change to epp (allowing an io device as well as a file)
then any io server (that is correct :-) would be ok. that way we could
have any storage, instead of only a file.
Those were the days...
