You mean packing? One of the reasons for my question on BerkeleyDB is
because I'm working on an autopacking storage based on BerkeleyDB. I
think it would be a better choice for the back-back-end, although the
insanity of BerkeleyDB on Linux distros might make that problematic.
If we were to go with a FileStorage, then yes, packing is an issue.
Of course, with a Berkeley storage you get all the headaches of
Berkeley maintenance too.
This is still a long ways off, so there's time to think about it.
