11 while not technically what you asked for, keeping the tree on a
12 partition with a smaller than default block and inode size would allow
13 you to decrease wasted space significantly, ext3 does 1024 in linux
14 iirc, docs suggest 512 should be possible, but i have not found a fs on
15 linux that did indeed allow actual use of 512byte blocks/inodes (yes you
16 want to make sure to adjust both, not just one)
18 hope this helps while people consider integrating them elsewhere to safe
19 the most space possible
