Actually we were initially using plain files to store the data.  It 
turned out to be more efficient to use SQL to store them because the 
glut of smaller files caused issues on NTFS.

But I consider NTFS to be a legacy filesystem.  On modern filesystems 
like ReiserFS, it would probably be quite efficient.
