That's why I said that in the context of devices which did their own
wear leveling: mutating the mapping between blocks as seen by the host
and blocks in the underlying flash so as to spread the writes around is
what wear leveling _is_.

If the floppy was made recently, /dev/null approaches the reliability
of a floppy. :(
