Of course. I think it all was about new features for new code.
By the way, it reminds me MemAvail (though not exactly the same). Lots 
of code used to use it, however AFAIK it is not available anymore (for a 
clear reason that it is inappropriate for any modern code)

This is understood. I was just speculating theoretically.
