General question: isn't the effect of that software exactly the same
thing as increasing the vm.dirty_expire_centiseconds kernel parameter?

Except maybe in the case of a given application calling sync() all the
time, but then it usually has a good reason to do so (such as the
written data being too important to be in cache during a power cut).
