I already thought about it (see below). No problem if
small files but can be a problem if file is several
hundred megabytes. The problem with tar file is that I
would require 3 times the space: One for the Tclkit,
one for extracting the tar to the filesystem and one
for extracting the contents. Unless it is possible to
layer VFS inside each other (open a vfs::tar file
inside mk4vfs::vfs) ?
