(forgot to answer that part)
FSX and FSFS f7 do indeed share that feature and will provide
the following common features based on it but with different
* pack reorders data
* block read & prefetch
* checksum all data
FSX however replaces the "isolated" FS on-disk items with
containers for massively reduced on-disk and in-memory size.
Also, the txdelta algorithm will differ (fixed window v1 in FSFS
vs. sliding window v2 in FSX).
Basically, f7 looks just like f6 but offsets need to get though
an index translation to get the physical offset. Everything else
is mere optimization that's enabled by this indirection.
