Getting away from the SV/BSD debate for a while...

I've got a bunch of files that are needed by applications used by
co-workers of mine.  They're about 4GB uncompressed, 350MB
compressed.  The problem is, the applications which use them aren't
capable of uncompressing on demand.  So, I was wondering:

Is there anything in NetBSD along the lines of a compressed
filesystem?  I realize that, if I were really industrious, I could
probably write a lkm to do this, but I don't think I'm that
industrious.  :)
