In the old file format you could do that - though you still had to fully read every file, as they are g-zipped. It did, though, have a highest non-transparent block entry.

I believe the format has changed, though I have not looked into it to see how. If it is still zipped then you have to inflate every frigging file and, to be honest, this will never be really fast.

Personally, I don;t see why we bother (given resources required) - will only add to the sense of permanence on a temp world?

Agree the problem needs solving though as when the perm world does arrive, this issue will be there waiting for us.
