I'm sorry but yes you do if you want that region to be backed by a memory mapped file.

otherwise you're just copying/serializing objects into that space at best.

to back an object with a memory mapped region of the process address space you'd have to be able to pin an object to a specific address - not really possible in a garbage collected system without some sort of significant work around.
When I was growin' up, I was the smartest kid I knew. Maybe that was just because I didn't know that many kids. All I know is now I feel the opposite.
