    Hmmm, perhaps! libarchive looks nice from a initial point of view.

    You would not HAVE to go around and patch every program, but if you patch a program or two these programs would instantly benefit from being able to handle lots of archive formats transparently.

This means that your 10 year old program could easily support a modern packer once available as all the program needed to support was XPK. I wish that more people saw the genius of the old days.

    That's great, but what do you need util-linux for? I setup my zram devices purely with /sys, do I still need util-linux?

    I'd love to see btrfs benchmarks. 1.3.4 and 1.3.5 both brought big performance improvements, so probably the numbers changed quite a bit from the last one
