Now that's an interesting idea. I propose that Ashod immediately drop
his pristine work and instead implement a proof-of-concept, portable
userspace compressed filesystem. I further suggest that the best test
case for the reference implementation might be pristine storage for
Subversion, and in order to lop a few man-years off the proof-of-concept
stage, he might use SQLite for storing filesystem metadata.
Oh wait ... :)
