    That's true for current ext2fs implementations, but people have occasionally
    suggested that for small files (64 bytes or less), the data should be
    stored in the inode itself. If that ever comes to pass, then the 10 byte
    version will save disk space.

    ps: I've got around 5000 files on my system whose size is in [1,64].
