We're probably going to see this a lot in the field. It might be worth
having some recovery logic. Here's a straw-man: if disk is full at boot,
delete the single largest journal entry, iterate until disk is not full
Is there anything that can be thrown away before we start scragging the
user's work? Browser caches, or similar things?
How much space is needed for a successful boot anyways? Maybe there
ought to be a dummy file stored just for the purpose of being thrown
away in an emergency.
Or throw away least recently used non-core activities, which hopefully
could easily be reloaded from the web or a teacher's USB stick.
I'd think that throwing away the child's work would be one of the last
things we'd want to do.
