    Why not tell the developer, he's probably unaware of this, I'm sure he'll listen to your wise conclusion.

    Edit: I noticed it's just a few hundred LOCs, I thought it would take at least a few thousand.

    It is not really a virtual file-system, that would be bloat (hence the joke). It is really just an new index over data already availble (the install path). As such it is very little code, but also not a virtual file-system.

    I think you buried the lead here. They're talking about implementing modules in C++. That's huge.

    So, they're making things more efficient by doing path-mapping tricks in memory instead of expensive disk activity (in the form of unnecessary file copies), and you're calling that bloat?
