Sorry if I was misunderstood:

Firstly, of course I agree with everything you said here (whether it's
ironically meant or not), and secondly, of course I didn't mean to modify
the low-level OS functions themselves, but BLENDER's low-level functions
(which USE calls like fwrite/fread) to use memory instead.
