   [re the dir format for an fs-based blob-db]

   Why don't you make the thing configurable and tunable by administrators?
   You could put some parameters into the format description to the root
   directory like this:

   directory format = [4 4]

Because there are only a small number of settings for such parameters
that make sense, and this seems to be a fundamental property of 
the universe.  Making it arbitrarily configurable like that is 
more generality than needed.

Either a fixed scheme (not mine, which is bogus) or an adaptive scheme
is enough.   Both options suggest pretty different code than the
parameterized approach you suggest, I think.
