Hmm, yeah, the cost for verify_hdr() would still matter, and
presumably you would be hashing the additional 200kB to validate the
smaller "changes since the base" file to give users the same level
of protection against corruption.

Why bitmaps, though?  Naïvely I would have expected you to read from
two sorted streams and have the transaction log override the base.

Intrigued to find it out...
