One concern w/ this glep- the intention seems to be to reduce on disk 
space requirements but the addition of compression raises questions 
for rsync transferance of the manifests.

Have you done any testing to quantify how much of an increase in rsync 
bandwidth this will add?  Specifically thinking about the metamanifest 
on this one.
