Hi Olly,

Will the "old" 0.9.6ish zlib-patch still work on this version?
If not do you have a new version for me?

Do you expect to integrate it in a release anytime? Or do you think the 
Flint-backend won't improve much from zlib-compression and can better be 
used without it, especially with your other upcoming (size-related) 

By the way, I missed the messages about the alternative block-size for 
the compaction of flint and quartz, is 8KB the best value for large 
databases? Or mostly used as default because it always was?

Best regards,

Arjen van der Meijden

PS, My apologies for ending each sentence with a question mark ;-)
