 Is there any chance that it's gonna be supported in the final sdk?
Think there are many applications that would profit from this

 No, this isn't going to be supported in the final version for legal reasons.

 A function preload(GeoPoint p1, GeoPoint p2, GeoPoint p3, GeoPoint p4)
would be useful that preloads the whole area inside the rectangle
defined by  p1,p2,p3,p4 ....

2. yaffs2 and streams

My understanding is that the Android will be using the yaffs2 file
system.  Is that correct?

If so, I have a question about how it handles failed stream
operations.  I'm writing a small app that can potentially do a lot of
I/O using file streams.  On some environments, I've noticed that under
high CPU situations, the occasional stream operation fails:  for
example, a call to mystream.write(buffer, 10) might fail, or a call to
"mystream << buffer".

I know it fails because returns true after the call.
However, what I don't know is the extent of the failure.  Did none of
the bytes make it through?  Or two bytes, or nine?

The errno is 0 and so far in my testing, none of the bytes make it
through.  However, I don't know if this is always the case thanks to
yaffs journaling, or whether this is just luck and partial output of
the stream is just rare but possible with my application.

Does anyone know if I can/should rely on the journaling to ensure that
none of the bytes in the failed call makes it through, or if I need to
put in some sort of rollback mechanism in my code to gaurantee this?
