Indeed. I could add an optional flag to enable fsync'ing in the
_ext_write() calls in Switchboard.py, but I wouldn't want to enable it
by default. It really kills performance.
For 2.1.3, I'll add a flag to Switchboard.py but disable it by default;
I'm not going to expose the flag in mm_cfg.py, but it'll be possible for
the adventurous to experiment.
