Theoretical arguments are presented concerning the low temperature (T) behavior of quantum gases inside or near nanoporous media. The density of states at low energy can be interpreted in terms of an effective dimensionality D, as can the low T head capacity C(T). Depending on the circumstances, D is shown here to assume one of the values D=1,2,4,5 or infinity. Intriguing questions concerning this range of behavior are addressed.
