Thanks Simon, that's good news.

This did come from a reputable source (!) - perhaps it applies to clusters?
I mentioned mnesia, but of course we don't want any file to be "pinned".

We'll probably ask for some confirmation that this is the case (and will
hold for future releases) via official channels so that we have confidence
our disaster recovery plan is valid.
