And then try bzip2 to get even more disgusted,

On similar data, 65k.  That's about 69:1.  bzip2 takes significantly
longer than gzip, though.  I suspect the whole archive format would have
to go bzip2 for bzip2 to be tolerated, and you'd probably want to compress a smaller unit, like a given package or package-version.

And if you cat all the log files together, you get 2.6 M, which means ext2 is wasting less than 50% of the space.

On Reiser, it's in between, at 3.5M
