In the wonderful world of DOS, filesystem compression utilities are
becoming popular.  With the DOS 6.2 I just installed on my machine, I
was encouraged to use dblspace.  Apparently there's some other
popular package named "stacker" or some such.

Well, my dblspace'd msdos filesystem wouldn't mount with mount_msdos,
so I concluded that the compressed variants of DOS filesystems are
not currently supported by NetBSD.

Does anyone know what it would take to support these guys?  Is there
a standard format for the compression used?
