Persistence and Newton OS...

I actually don't have anything really to contribute on this topic right
now, but I was wondering if there has been any discussion or thought
about the NewtonOS. If you're not familiar with it, it achieved a form
of persistence (I think that's th right term :) because all of it's
storage is in RAM, kept up by a constant power supply (the batteries).
I don't own a Newton, but played with one once and thought that was a
nice feature. Pardon me if this has been covered before, I am currently
working my way through the archives and hadn't noticed any mention of
