    Starting from first principles a bit you might want to read/review Arnd
    Bergmanns work on Flash drive performance and behaviour. It has some
    fairly significant impact on how you lay out your file system and in
    particular questions like "where should I put stuff that is updated
    regularly' (in the same blocks a FAT fs would put the FAT being one clear
