Yes, I know, I was hoping for some little tip along
the lines of "set mk4vfs::compressionLevel 3" for an
extra 10% savings but I guess it is not possible :)
My brainstorming ideas right now:
- Would it be possible to replace zip vfs with a bzip2
- Would it be possible to have two vfs one inside the
other? have a tar vfs inside a zip vfs?
- Some other way of making the starkit payload be a
.tar.gz archive instead of a metakit database ?
