possible win32 fsfs performance

Arn't old rev files read only? Only altered when that particular revision is committed?
I'm not sure about the 'filesystem that doesn't suck' stuff... Presumably even Linux (Peace Be Upon It) suffers from inefficiencies when storing 10,000's of small files (compared to fewer big ones).
My idea was to make the 'jaring' an occasional svnadmin routine, not something done daily or anything. Just for very old revisions.
JAR files are terrible for read-write performance (as you have to keep
rearranging the archive. They make a great way to store lots of read-only
files, but not a good way to store a growing repository.

fsfs lets subversion take advantage of the simpler solutions possible if we
have a filesystem that doesn't suck (tm).
