Too many writes to it. Keep it in a special jffs_node in the main 
filesystem, perhaps. Still have to scan for the latest one, though. Perhaps 
put one _only_ at the beginning of an erase block, nowhere else. Then it's 
quick to find the latest one, and also you know which blocks were written 
_after_ the checkpoint (nodes have mtime).
