--- Comment #3 from Adam Wight <s...@ludd.net> 2011-02-23 08:16:55 UTC ---
metadata is sorely needed in most of your dump files, IMO.

This is an unorthodox suggestion, but consider the fact that the .bz2 format
can be split and reassembled without codec operations.  You could postpone
writing the beginning of the root element and metadata until the end of the
backup, and then put all sorts of useful information in the "header", which is
compressed and the chunks prepended to the remainder of the data.

(Hope y're taking advantage of this fact to recombine parallel jobs as well.)
