And on certain filesystems, lookups from filenames to files can be slow 
if there are many files in the same directory.

If we go for direct filesystem storage (which I think should be 
perfectly ok to implement a Store), I think we need a clever mapping 
scheme to avoid having more than N files in the same directory.
