Subject Re: Compressed Pristines (Summary)

certainly fair points.  I guess I raised the issue to point out that there
are
other approaches to increase space-efficiency for pristine storage that
rate at least a mention under analysis/considerations, even if just
noted as "considered and discarded".

Overall, I'm sure it would be challenging, but would also likely yield
near-optimal
space efficiency.  I don't have direct experience implementing something
like this for any platform, but fyi: dokan (http://dokan-dev.net/en/) looks
like
an interesting possibility for windows platforms.

regards,
markt
