But whenever it's done, I'm sure it'll be great. BTW, I'm curious why some
people don't seem to like the idea. At the speed of modern systems, I
suspect that loading uncompressed off flopy isn't much faster (if at all)
than loading compressed off floppy and decompressing. In fact it may
be slower. I'd test it right now but my arms aren't 4 miles long, which
they'd have to be to reach the closest floppy drive on one of my NetBSDs...

Certainly likely. It is not at all inconcievable that the function of
decompressing an image is much faster than the I/O operation of reading
it from a slow floppy device.

This thread is starting to really diverge...
