Yeah, the existing way of sizing them is very bad on large systems 
and hardcoding a size sucks (though that's what we do on large 
Altix systems now).

IIRC there was some talk about using a different data structure 
here - something that wouldn't require a fixed size and that 
could maintain reasonably fast lookup even when it got large. 

Robert, has work been done to use TRASH to address this problem? 
Other ideas?
