    Next time around, when you update the on-disk format, how about
    allowing for such a thing?

    You could have a tree that maps from inode number to whatever
    you need to find a file. This shouldn't affect much more than
    file creation and deletion. Maybe it will allow for a more
    robust fsck as well, helping to justify the cost.

    It would be really nice to be able to find all filenames that
    refer to a given inode number.
