Hi,

having followed the previous threads about this, perhaps I shouldn't
post the following idea:

Why not put all properties and text base in a single, (compressed?) file
per working directory?
Or, even more extreme, per checkout location? ;-)

As compression has already been discussed (and more or less been turned
down due to sufficiently available storage everywhere *G*), I'd like to
put the emphasis on a further reduction of inodes used.

(Although using a compressed file format might reduce the coding effort
necessary, since compressed files offer an "embedded file system" --
this is something "the devs" should decide)

If I was a C guru I'd sure had applied for the summer of code...
unfortunately I'm more on the Java side :-/

WIth best regards,

        -hannes
