unrelated to that: imho, the term 'snapshot' is a misnomer.
i understand and expect something different under a snapshot in the
filesystem context. for me, a snapshot consists not of the diff but of
the entire data of a filesystem. like a dump made at a particular
point in time.
while we are at it and this is a good time to name things properly, do
you have a better, more suitable name in mind we could use instead of
'snapshot' to designate an 'overlay packed into a file'?
