Thank you for your experiment. I'm not surprised by the
result but it is very nice to know that my expectations
I think that to a large extent you are seeing artifacts
of the questionable trade-offs that (reports tell me) the
ext* filesystems make. With a different filesystem, the
results would be very different.
I'm imagining a blob database containing may revisions of the linux
kernel. It will contain millions of blobs.
It's fine that some filesystems and some blob operations work fine
on a directory with millions of files but what about other operations
on the database? I pity the poor program that has to `readdir' through
millions of files.
That said: I may add an optional flat-directory format to my library,
just to avoid issues such as those you raise over the next couple
