I'm announcing last version of the libtune API, that has been developped
to unify the way developers have to access Linux kernel tunables, system
information, resource consumptions.

Next step of the project will consist in making the kernel able to tune
the resources as it sees appropriate.
The reason for having tunables is so the admin can get the behaviour
desired. Since the kernel can't really know which behaviour to optimize
this would wind up being the kernel tuning itself to your (someone's)
idea of better. That may be great for some newbie, but honestly the
default values put in by the developers are satisfactory in most cases.
I hope "as it sees appropriate" isn't really what you mean...
