+.SH "IMPORTANT NOTES"
+.B "LPSM databases are not portable."
+This is pretty much inherent in the fact that the LPSM library does
+not attach any meaning to the data it stores. Therefore it is
+imperative that your application allows a way to dump its database
+contents in a portable form.
+.PP
+Currently the persistent memory database is not sharable nor
+thread-safe. I'm hoping to resolve at least the latter condition in
+due time.
+.PP
+Because the persistent memory is mapped into memory at a fixed address
+(which varies with architecture) it is not possible to have more than
+one LPSM database mapped at any one time.
+.PP
+The LPSM library installs a handler for the
+.B SIGSEGV
+signal.
