Ideas include all compression formats supported by Python, markdown to HTML translators to be accessed with nsmux (file.mdwn,,html), automatic version tracking directories and overlay stores which store changes to nonchanging files like squaschfs, but also simple translators like translator-based write-locking of files by not catching write-accesses.
